Shiga Prefecture Eyes Investment Opportunities in Ha Nam’s Favorable Business Environment

HA NAM — A delegation from Japan's Shiga Prefecture, led by Governor Mikazuki Taizo, engaged in a working session with the People’s Committee of Ha Nam province on November 3 to assess the investment prospects in this northern Vietnamese province.

According to Vietnam News Agency, the Japanese businesses that are already established in Ha Nam commend the province for its accommodating investment conditions. Local authorities have been providing favorable conditions for foreign firms, particularly Japanese companies, which are facilitated by a dedicated industrial park.

The governor highlighted the delegation’s composition, which includes many technology-forward enterprises interested in investing in Ha Nam. He called upon the provincial leaders to maintain and enhance the optimum conditions that encourage investments from Shiga, as well as from the broader Japanese business community, to strengthen Vietnam-Japan relations.

Chairman of the Ha Nam Provincial People’s Committee, Truong Quoc Huy, presented the locality's potential, strengths, and incentives for investors. He emphasized the province’s consistent fulfillment of commitments to investors, which include complete infrastructure support, expedited administrative processes, workforce development and recruitment assistance, comprehensive service provision, and ensuring safety and public order.

Ha Nam is home to 120 Japanese enterprises, with investments totaling over 2 billion USD. These firms are recognized for their advanced technology implementation, compliance with Vietnamese laws, the establishment of secure work environments, and significant contributions to the province’s economic progress, Huy noted.

The official expressed optimism that following this visit, the province will attract more investments and businesses from Shiga Prefecture, further enhancing economic collaboration between the two regions.
