They are among at least 500 domestic and foreign delegates to the event, which is themed “Hanoi 2016 – Cooperation, Investment and Development,” said Deputy Director of the municipal Department of Planning and Investment Vu Duy Tuan.
At a meeting with the press on May 31, Tuan noted that the conference is a chance for Hanoi’s authorities to reiterate their commitment to creating a transparent and favourable environment for all enterprises.
The municipal People’s Committee and businesspersons will discuss and devise measures for improving the local investment climate and methods for attracting investments and development cooperation with companies.
The conference will also serve as a platform for enterprises to seek partnerships, he said.
During the function, the local administration is to call for companies to engage in social welfare programmes in environment, health care, education and culture to raise local living standards.
It will also grant investment registration certificates to major projects while honouring investors who have substantially contributed to the socio-economic growth in Hanoi, Tuan added.
