Thanks to its open policies and rich potential, the central province of Quang Ngai has become a popular destination for both domestic and foreign investors.

The locality has, to date, granted licences to 302 projects with a total registered capital of over 178 trillion VND (8.36 billion USD).

The acceleration of administrative reforms, the improvement of competitiveness and the renovation of investment promotion activities are responsible for the upturn.

In addition, the province has prioritised compensation work, site clearance, labour training and the management and inspection of the implementation of projects.

It has also stepped up dialogue with investors in order to untangle knots they face during the investment process.

In 2013 alone, industrial parks in Quang Ngai attracted 11 new projects, raising the total number to 86 worth more than 5.76 trillion VND, generating jobs for tens of thousands of people.

The province considers Dung Quat Oil Refinery as the centre in its investment attraction strategy but will continue to lure investment in others, especially FDI projects in industry, urban development and services.-VNA
