Actively supporting businesses, investors
Implementing Resolution No. 73-NQ / TU dated May 6, 2016 of the provincial Party Committee on improving the investment and business environment in the province in the 2016-2020 period, the Party Committee and authorities of Bac Giang city have paid attention to directing administrative reform and creating favorable conditions for investors and businesses.
The city’s specialized agencies have reviewed and shortened the time for handling many administrative procedures related to investment and business. In three consecutive years, from 2016 to 2018, the city led the province in administrative reform.
Khong Thi Thuy, Director of the Phu Quy Social Company Limited, said in 2018, the Phu Quy OIBC Group International Investment Joint Venture Company Limited (a joint venture between the Phu Quy Social Company Limited and the OIBC Finance Investment Group of Hong Kong) implemented the Phu Quy OIBC International Rehabilitation Center project on an area of 13,000sq.m in My Do ward.
The province and Bac Giang city have created conditions for enterprises to invest in the locality while listening to businesses and promptly solving arising problems for them. It now takes less than a month to complete legal procedures from the time of submission to the time when the results are returned.
Besides, the city has paid attention to upgrading the technical infrastructure of residential areas and roads connecting the old urban areas with the new ones to create favorable conditions for investors to implement their projects. It has also supported site clearance compensation as well as production, branding and trade promotion activities.
In the coming time, the municipal People's Committee plans to continue building and creating a truly open, transparent, favorable and equal investment, production and business environment between all economic sectors, creating the motivation to attract investment and develop businesses.
According to Mai Son, Chairman of the municipal People's Committee, the city’s leaders will increase dialogues and promptly remove difficulties and obstacles for businesses in investment, production and business activities.
