Thai Nguyen continues to make strong efforts to improve the investment environment and attract capital to the province. The Chairman of the Provincial People’s Committee has recently signed Decision No. 1021/QD-UBND to establish a special working group tasked with resolving difficulties and supporting businesses, investors, and industrial and service development projects across the province.
Launching the special working group to support investors
The working group consists of more than 30 members, with comrade Nguyen Thanh Binh, Vice Chairman of the Provincial People’s Committee, as the team leader, and the Director of the Department of Planning and Investment as the deputy team leader. Members include the Chief of the Provincial People’s Committee Office, heads of departments and sectors of the province, the Chairman of the People’s Committee of districts and cities, and deputy directors of the Department of Planning and Investment.
During the investment process in Thai Nguyen, especially in industrial zones and clusters, domestic and foreign investors may face difficulties related to land clearance, procedures, personnel, and banking. Therefore, the working group is tasked with reviewing, summarizing difficulties, proposing solutions, and providing information to help the Chairman of the Provincial People’s Committee direct and coordinate activities between sectors and localities to resolve issues arising in the implementation of projects in the province.
The working group also has the responsibility of urging and monitoring the process of addressing difficulties faced by investors. Additionally, they may propose investment promotion solutions to attract large-scale and high-tech projects.
The working group will report to the Chairman of the Provincial People’s Committee on a regular basis or as necessary to provide updates on progress and propose solutions to timely resolve any difficulties or obstacles faced by investment projects in the province. The Department of Planning and Investment will actively receive and advise on documents from sectors, units, and localities sent to the working group, and will summarize and report regularly as required. The establishment of the working group is expected to help resolve difficulties and obstacles for businesses, contributing to a favorable business environment and continued attraction of domestic and FDI investors to Thai Nguyen.
