They were informed that the province is calling for foreign investments in the support industry and hi-tech agriculture during a working session with Mai Tien Dung, Secretary of the province’s Party Committee.
Ha Nam has favourable transport linking with neighbouring provinces and an abundant, quality workforce, said the host.
He also noted that investors will be allocated with land free of charge to build houses for workers and get one-year land rent tax exemption for high-technology agriculture projects using breeds and line production from Japan.
The province also encouraged the enterprises to build centres producing breeds for farmers and provide them with technique and consumption guidance.
Delegation head Ueda Shigeru said the feedback from the Japanese enterprises operating in Ha Nam said the province has a good investment environment.
The locality’s assistance for small- and medium-sized enterprises makes it an ideal investment destination for Tokushima businesses, he said.
Visiting Tokushima businesses are engaging in agriculture, transportation, import-export, finance and banking, he told the host.
Currently, 59 Japanese enterprises are operating in Ha Nam and all of them are said to be profitable./.
