Cha Sung Wook, Deputy General Director of the Korea Trade and Investment Promotion Agency in Hanoi (KOTRA Hanoi), said that through studying Yen Bai's potential and strengths, he hoped that Korean investors will invest in Vietnam in general, and Yen Bai in particular in different areas, including processing industry, new material production, clean energy, electronic component production, traditional handicrafts, services, and health care.
Many Korean businesses highly appreciated Yen Bai's recent development, especially its transport infrastructure, as well as the province's attention and efforts to create favourable conditions for investors.
Vu Van Chung, Deputy Director of the Foreign Investment Agency under the Ministry of Planning and Investment, said Yen Bai has paid attention to investing in synchronous infrastructure and convenient traffic connectivity so its industrial clusters and parks have much room for development.
The inter-regional cooperation between Yen Bai province and Hai Phong city promotes mutual development and attracts Korean investors, he said.
At the conference, representatives from agencies of Yen Bai province signed cooperation agreements with those from Hai Phong city and the RoK to enhance exchange activities and experience sharing in investment, trade, tourism, health care, and agricultural product consumption.
Meanwhile, the RoK ranks first among the 42 nations and territories pouring capital into the northern port city of Hai Phong, with 105 projects totaling $11 billion, according to the Hai Phong Economic Zone Authority.
