A delegation of the Press Association of Thailand, led by its Chairwoman Nattaya Chetchotiros, visited the southern province of Ben Tre on April 6.
Local authorities briefed Thai journalists on Ben Tre’s socio-economic situation and potential, as well as its investment incentives given to foreign investors.
According to local officials, Thailand is now the largest foreign investor in Ben Tre province, where big Thai businesses, including the CP Group and the Alliance One, have invested in many production projects.
Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, Nguyen Van Hieu, expressed his hoped that the Thai media would help to introduce the province’s potential to regional countries and encourage Thai companies to increase the inflow of investment into Ben Tre.
