Kien Giang pledged to improve the local business climate and legal framework for investors. It also vowed to remove barriers in public administration schemes and provide investors with preferential policies.
The province aims to create a dynamic, creative and efficient business environment for investors as it sees their success as its own, said Secretary of the provincial Party’s Committee Nguyen Thanh Nghi.
Kien Giang will be consistent in implementing investment policies and ensure supply of human resources and services for investors. Additionally, it will hold dialogues between local authorities and businesses to address problems in a timely manner and help projects run on schedule, Nghi said.
