NGHE AN (VNS) — National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung met with investors from around the country in the central province of Nghe An on Saturday.

The event, now in it's sixth successive year, allowed the Chairman the opportunity to discuss issues relating to investment and trade enhancement.

The Chairman highlighted the importance of incentives for investors and the expansion of the province's seaport network and East-West highway.

Embedded in his request, Chairman Hung reiterated the need for local authorities to review economic policy for their development master plan.

The provincial officials were optimistic that investors would inject more capital into the central province, which would bolster the use of advanced technologies and support environmentally-friendly growth.

Economists and members of the business community strongly advocated the need for improvements in the quality of the local workforce, with delegates voicing support for additional training and skills development.

The event also saw the provincial People's Committee grant investment licenses to a wide range of domestic and foreign businesses.

At similar events, held between 2009 and 2013, Nghe An Province licensed 47 projects collectively valued at more than VND61.6 trillion (US$2.9 billion), including five foreign-invested deals worth more than VND2.5 trillion ($110 million).

The same day, the top legislator attended a ceremony to kick-start the construction of a VND450 billion ($21.4 million) flyover across National Highway 46.

He attended the inauguration of Nghe An's largest hi-tech industrial production complex, which, in the next five years, is expected to provide jobs for nearly 16,000 workers.

The Chairman also kicked-off a tree planting ceremony in the locality. — VNS
