Buon Ma Thuot, the capital of Dac Lac province, is to host an investment promotion forum for the Central Highlands on September 5, said Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Nguyen Phuong Nga.
Nga, taking over from former Spokesperson Le Dung, who has assumed a new assignment, said that the forum will provide an opportunity for regional provinces to keep domestic and overseas investors informed about the attractive opportunities, benefits, and incentives for investors offered by the region.
The event is likely to attract many participants, including provincial leaders from the Cambodia-Laos-Vietnam development triangle. The foreign diplomatic corps in Vietnam, representatives from international financial institutions such as the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and foreign businesses are also expected to attend the forum.
