The event, co-hosted by the Lao Cai People’s Committee and Joint Stock Bank for Investment and Development, will focus on introducing the results of attracting investment to the province over the past time and orienting investment attraction priorities for socio-economic development for the 2016-2020 period.

In addition, the conference will discuss Lao Cai’s commitments on supporting investment and improving the business climate in the province, as well as directions of the Government, ideas of ministries, centrally-governed agencies, experts and enterprises.

On the sidelines, cooperative agreements and credit aids will be signed and investment certificates will be presented at the event.

The actions aim to connect tourism activities with associations, travel enterprises and agencies, and investors both inside and outside the country.

In 2015, the province received over 2 million tourist arrivals, in which 600,000 were foreign tourists, grossing a turnover of more than VND4.6 trillion./.
