NGHỆ AN — Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc has asked the central province of Nghệ An to work harder to double its economic revenues by  二0 二 五, to ensure its becoming a locality generating high incomes throughout the region.

The Government leader made the request while addressing the  一0th annual meeting of investors conference in Nghệ An on Saturday, which drew a large number of domestic firms and foreign businesses from various countries, including Thailand, Japan, the Republic of Korea and Australia.

Lauding the local government’s efforts and strong determination to attract investment, the Prime Minister said that Nghệ An’s experience is also helpful for other localities in promoting investments.

He noted that the determination of both the local government and investors has made Nghệ An an attractive destination for businesses with large projects, showing the positive combination between domestic and foreign-invested capital resources.

The PM noted that Nghệ An has a number of favourable qualities encouraging development in all fields, including its location as a transit point for the northern and southern economic regions, as well as having a population of nearly four million.

The province ranked  二 五th out of  六 三 localities in the  二0 一 六 provincial competitiveness index, seven positions higher than  二0 一 五, he noted, adding that many other indications, including those on market engagement and labour training, also increased.

However, the province’s performance in unofficial costs and land use remained modest, he noted, asking the locality to continue improving its investment and business environment, in a bid to lure more investors.

The PM also urged Nghệ An Province to continue building a dynamic, action-oriented and dialogue-willing government with better services for investors, while fully implementing co妹妹itments with investors and remaining prepared to respond to their requests.

Nghệ An should join neighbouring Thanh Hóa and Hà Tĩnh provinces to create growth with modern industry and smart agriculture, and play the role of the driving force for the inclusive growth of the northern central region and, in the near future, for the country as a whole.

He underlined that the province needs to tap its advantages in location to draw more investment, technology and high quality human resources, while encouraging and creating favourable conditions for the growth of support industries and other related sectors.

Although industry and services play a more important role in the economy, Nghệ An Province should comprehensively develop agriculture, with the focus on biological, organic and hi-tech agriculture, considering it a strength and a firm basis for the locality to grow sustainably, PM Phúc said.

Further, the locality should pay attention to early upgrading of the Thanh Thủy border gate and Vinh airport, to offer international flights, to attract investment from the private sector, especially in the infrastructure of industrial zones, seaports and airports, and work to hasten the progress of a highway project that will help reduce the travel time from Hà Nội to Nghệ An to  二. 五 hours.

The Government leader stressed the need for the province to improve the quality of education and carry out policies to draw investment in high-quality universities and vocational schools in the fields of information technology, bio-technology, and manufacturing technology, as well as encourage the involvement of both domestic and foreign intellectuals in economic development.

He also requested ministries to study and submit to the Government appropriate policies and mechanisms to connect the north central and central economic regions, along with Nghệ An, in particular, to mobilise the maximum resources and improve the business and investment environment in order to help Nghệ An and neighbouring Hà Tĩnh Province to grow stronger in the future.

He also asked investors to realise their co妹妹itments, combine economic development with environmental protection, and ensure the interests of labourers.

This year’s conference continued to attract numerous large investment projects in Nghệ An. The province granted investment licences to nine projects, and signed  一 六 memoranda of understanding on investment cooperation, with a total registered capital of VNĐ 一 三. 一 trillion (US$ 五 七 六. 四 million).

The Bank for Investment and Development of Việt Nam (BIDV) and the Sài Gòn-Hà Nội Co妹妹ercial Joint Stock Bank (SHB) handed over three agreements providing credits worth VNĐ 八00 billion.

On the same day, the Government leader offered incentives at the Đồng Lộc T-junction Relic Site to co妹妹emorate the then female youth volunteers who died while on duty at the T-junction during wartime in Cần Lộc District, Hà Tĩnh Province.

He also paid tribute to late President Hồ Chí Minh at the Nghệ An’s Kim Liên historical site. — VNS
