A number of localities in the Red River Delta region are to receive investment capital worth billions of dollars, according to Deputy Minister of Planning and Investment Tran Duy Dong.
Deputy Minister Dong also said Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh will chair a conference on February 12 in Quang Ninh province on the implementation of the Government’s Action Programme to realise the Politburo’s Resolution on directions for socio-economic development and defense and security assurance in the Red River Delta to 2030, with a vision to 2045. Accordingly, 20 official development assistance projects in the region will receive a share of a $2 billion commitment from international groups. There will also be a series of investment certificates and four investment planning decisions awarded, along with two MOUs to be signed, worth $1 billion in registered capital.
Quang Ninh People’s Committee will also release the province’s plan for the period of 2021-2030, with a vision to 2050.
“This conference will play an important role in the growth of the Red River Delta region, as it represents a breakthrough opportunity for the area, long considered to be the industrial heartland of Vietnam and one of the richest and most developed parts of the country,” Dong said.
Attracting foreign direct investment (FDI) is one of the key tasks on the Quang Ninh agenda for 2023. Quang Ninh last week set a specific target for enticing FDI in 2023 as it looks to attract 18 foreign-invested projects into economic zones this year, of which, 16 are to be newly registered projects with two added-capital projects, totalling approximately $1.2 billion in value, more than 10 per cent over projections.
The region comprises 11 provinces and centrally-run cities, divided into two sub-regions. The northern sub-region covers Hanoi, Haiphong, and the provinces of Quang Ninh, Vinh Phuc, Bac Ninh, Hai Duong, and Hung Yen, while the south consists of the provinces Thai Binh, Ha Nam, Nam Dinh, and Ninh Binh.
