Ha Tinh green lights 76 investment projects

Ha Tinh, October 16 (VNA) – The central province of Ha Tinh approved in principle 76 projects over the past nine months, including three foreign-invested projects, with combined investment capital of over 330 million USD, local authorities said. 

Among these projects is a 55.3 million USD maritime tourism complex, developed by An Giang Dragon Ha Tinh Co; a 54 million USD hotel and trade centre complex, financed by Viet Trung Investment Co; and another eco-tourism project, valued at 13.4 million. 

So far, the province is home to 740 projects, including 671 domestic projects capitalised at 4.39 billion USD and 69 others were financed by foreign investors from 15 countries and territories with capital totaling more than 11.63 billion USD. 

Japan, the Republic of Korea, Brunei and Australia, as well as the US, Thailand, Philippines and Laos, along with Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong, are the province’s leading sources of foreign investment. 

Under this year’s investment promotion programme, the province plans to lure potential investors from Japan, the Republic of Korea and Germany with the help of those currently investing in the province. 

The province is calling for investment in hi-tech farming, support industries, tourism and services, as well as high-quality personnel training projects and waste and wastewater treatment projects. 

The Thien Cam and Xuan Thanh tourism sites and Ke Go Lake eco-tourism spot are also seeking foreign investment. 

To attract more investors, the province will continue to speed up administrative reform, perfect infrastructure facilities, accelerate land clearance and foster investment promotion activities. 

Provincial authorities will also hold dialogues with entrepreneurs and investors in the locality to get recommendations and help resolve problems.
