Nghe An’s investment promotion activities have an important role to play
in attracting investors to the province, National Assembly Chairman
Nguyen Sinh Hung has said.

Those activities have helped
the province draw more and more investment projects, including important
and large-scale ones, creating a big momentum for the socio-economic
development in the central province, Hung said at an annual investment
promotion conference, the fifth of its kind, organised by Nghe An
People’s Committee in coordination with the Party Committee of the
Central Business Bloc and the Bank for Investment and Development of
Vietnam (BIDV), on Feb. 23.

The activities should focus on
infrastructure projects, especially those related to the transport
system, Hung told more than 500 participants who are representatives of
ministries and branches, domestic and foreign businessmen, investors and
economic experts.

Together with promotion activities, the
province should continue administrative reforms and attach importance
to and harmonie benefits among the State, community, people and
investors, he added.

Since the first conference in 2009,
Nghe An has attracted 335 investment projects with a total registered
capitals of 107.1 trillion VND (around 5 billion USD).

Among
the 22 foreign investment projects, Japan’s Kobe steel project is
the biggest in the province with an expected capital of 1 billion
USD. -VNA
