On April 7, 2014, Dr Vu Tien Loc, President of the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI), hosted a working session with Mr Nguyen Van Son, Standing Vice Chairman of the People's Committee of Ha Giang Province, to discuss the organisation of the Ha Giang Investment Promotion Conference 2014, themed "Our Potentials - Your Opportunities," scheduled for May 16.
At the meeting, Mr Son announced plans and contents of the investment promotion conference. He said Ha Giang has a lot of good potentials but they are yet to be fully exploited. Due to unfavourable geographic location, the province has difficulty attracting investment capital, specially ODA. The upcoming conference will introduce and advertise potentialities and strengths in resources, natural resources, social and economic conditions, and investment opportunities of Ha Giang province to domestic and international partners and investors.
VCCI President Vu Tien Loc affirmed that VCCI will support and coordinate with the province to organise the investment promotion conference successfully. VCCI will help Ha Giang to invite the business community, embassies of South Korea, Japan, the EU and other nations to the meeting. The conference will highlight strong fields of the province like tourism - services, agriculture - forestry; agro-forestry processing, tapping potentials at Dong Van Karst Plateau Global Geopark, and business development at Thanh Thuy Border Gate Economic Zone.
At this event, the Provincial People's Committee will hand investment certificates to such projects as a general service, hotel and restaurant project in Thanh Thuy Border Gate Economic Zone (invested by Hong Duc Co., Ltd.) and Yen Minh trade centre - hotel (Phuong Dong Development Joint Stock Company). The province will sign memorandums of understanding on investment cooperation with Vietnam Investment Development Group (VID), affiliated to Maritime Bank, to build the administrative centre of the province, with Xuan Thanh - Ninh Binh Group to build infrastructure of vocational training complex in Phong Quang commune, with Xuan Thien Co., Ltd to build a hotel - trade complex, and with Dong Tam Group to support 3,000 tonnes of cement for Meo Vac district.
