The index of industrial production (IIP) of the central province of Quang Binh in the first six months of this year increased annually by over 8.5 percent and its production value hit over 4.4 trillion VND (around 202.5 million USD).

The rise of the IIP indicates the stability of the locality’s industrial production and its promising growth.

Strong growth from a number of sectors contributed to the high rate. Among these, the garment-textile industry, non-metal minerals and cement saw the highest growths of 40 percent, 14 percent, and 11 percent, respectively.

To generate the positive results, the local authorities have promoted administrative procedure reforms to facilitate production of local enterprises.

The province plans to increase support for firms, especially those operating in industry in the locality.

It will also enhance investment promotion and assist investors to complete their industrial projects, focusing on garment-textiles, construction material and wood processing.-VNA
