Czech Senate President visits central Quang Nam province

Quang Nam, November 18 (VNA) – President of the Senate of the Czech Republic Milan Stech continued his official visit to Vietnam with a tour to the central province of Quang Nam on November 18.

At a working session with provincial officials the same day, the Czech legislative leader said Vietnam has a fairly high growth rate compared to other ASEAN nations.

He expressed his hope that Quang Nam will continue creating optimal conditions to support Czech businesses’ effective investments in the province.

Vice Chairman of the Quang Nam People’s Committee Huynh Khanh Toan informed his guest that the province has made great socio-economic strides in recent years.

Its gross regional domestic product grew by nearly 12 percent annually during the past three years, which was largely contributed by tourism, he said adding that Quang Nam welcomed almost 3.2 million tourists from January through October 2015.

The Hydra Vietnam Co. Ltd with a total capital of 5 million EUR is the only Czech invested enterprise in Quang Nam. It started officials operations in early 2014 and has provided jobs for more than 200 people, he noted.

The official emphasised that his province hopes for expanded cooperation with Czech partners and wants the European country to bridge Quang Nam with Czech localities that share similarities with the Vietnamese province.

While in Quang Nam, the Czech Senate President visited the Hydra Vietnam Co. Ltd, a wholly Czech invested company at the Dien Nam – Dien Ngoc Industrial Park, and Hoi An town – a UNESCO-recognised World Cultural Heritage site.
