HÀ NỘI — Central Group Vietnam expressed its desire to develop a trade centre in the northern province of Bắc Ninh at a working session with local authorities on Thursday, according to the provincial portal.
During the event, the company’s CEO Philippe Broianigo praised the province’s potential to develop a strong trade and service sector.
Broianigo said the plan to open a trade centre in the locality is part of its long-term investment orientation and that his company also wanted to establish connections with local manufacturers and suppliers to bring their products to its stores and help develop the province’s economy.
Chairman of Bắc Ninh People's Committee Nguyễn Tử Quỳnh spoke about the province’s achievements in socio-economic development over recent years.
With its favourable geographic position, adequate infrastructure and open investment policy, the province has attracted more than 1,300 foreign-invested projects from 34 countries and territories with total registered capital of US$18 billion, Quỳnh said.
Bắc Ninh hopes more businesses will come and make investments in the locality, he added.
