Hanoi is calling for investment in environmentally friendly large-scale
projects that use advanced technologies.
According to the
city’s promotion programme for trade, investment and tourism in 2017, it will prioritise
projects in urban infrastructure development, especially those that connect Noi
Bai International Airport and Nhat Tan Bridge; hi-tech agriculture; retailing;
healthcare; education and culture.
The capital aims to
carry out more projects under public-private partnership agreements and draw more
than 3 billion USD in foreign direct investment. It also hopes to have 80
percent of applications for business registration done online and plans to
pilot granting investment licences online.
In addition, local
authorities will enhance partnerships with other cities and provinces across
the country to distribute high quality “made in Vietnam” products in the city
and provide more support for local producers to improve product quality and
help them access domestic and overseas markets.
The city will
continue promoting tourism at international fairs with the focus on key markets
like Europe, the United States, Southeast Asia, Northeast Asia, South Asia and
the Middle East.-VNA
