BẮC NINH — The northern Bắc Ninh Province and Thailand’s King Prajadhipok’s Institute (KPI) exchanged experiences in socio-economic development during a meeting in the province yesterday.
Welcoming the visiting delegation, Permanent Vice Chairman of the province Nguyễn Tiến Nhường said the meeting was a good opportunity for the two sides to learn about localised experiences with socio-economic development and increase mutual understanding to pave the way for further co-operation.
At the meeting, the provincial authority discussed the locality’s urban development between 1997 and 2016 with a vision towards 2050 as well as its process for an economic transition. The two sides discussed ways to address key challenges in shifting from agricultural to industrial economies, conserving traditional culture during the modernisation process and developing hi-tech industry while protecting the environment.
The Thai delegation also learned firsthand about the province’s investment incentives in order to consider future investment opportunities in Viet Nam.
