On behalf of the PPC, Mr. Nguyen Van Cao expressed his pleasure to receive Korean enterprises to Thua Thien Hue to learn investment opportunities. He confirmed that Thua Thien Hue was enhancing to implement open policies to attract international investors, especially Korean investors.

According to Mr. Cao, Thua Thien Hue and Korea have kept a good cooperative relationship in recent years. Lots of Korea’s ODA projects implemented in the province have brought positive results and contributed to boosting the provincial socio-economic development. However, in terms of FDI, Korea accounts for only 2% of total FDI in Thua Thien Hue. As this is a modest rate compared to the potential cooperation between two sides, the PPC Chairman wished that KCCI in Vietnam would further support Thua Thien Hue in calling and introducing Korean investors to the province.

Thua ThienHueProvince will boost the cooperation with KCCI in Vietnam and create the most favourable conditions for Korean investors. Mr. Nguyen Van Cao hoped that many other Korean enterprises would know more about Thua Thien Hue and come to the province to learn investment opportunities via the delegation.

Also at the reception, representative of the Department of Planning and Investment, under the PPC’s authorization, introduced potentialities and advantages of the province in the sectors of tourism, industry, transportation, education and training, etc. as well as investment incentive policies.
