The province recently held an investment promotion conference in San Francisco city, which saw the attendance of Vietnamese Minister of Foreign Affairs Bui Thanh Son and representatives from Ho Chi Minh City, Hai Phong and Bac Giang, and nearly 70 US firms.

Hung Yen's growth strategy is based on three key pillars - industrial development with high, clean, low-carbon and resource-efficient technologies; trade-service development with high added values; and urban economic development based on speeding up urbanization and infrastructure completion, Nghia said.
Chairman of the provincial People's Committee Tran Quoc Van also introduced Hung Yen's strengths in investment attraction, stressing the locality wants to cooperate with US partners in the sale and export of major agricultural products and in the organization of trade promotion events.
The official noted his hope that the US side will help Hung Yen build and roll out projects to improve the province’s capacity of agricultural production and processing.
During the trip, Hung Yen signed cooperation agreements with four US partners in the fields of semiconductors, high-tech industry, farm produce sale and waste treatment.
