Dak Lak (VNA) – Deputy head of the Steering
Committee for Tay Nguyen (Central Highlands) Dieu Kre has called on businesses
from the Republic of Korea (RoK) to invest in the region on the basis of
potential and strength of each locality. 

He made the appeal at a seminar themed “The RoK-Tay
Nguyen Meeting 2017” jointly held by the Vietnamese Foreign Ministry, the RoK
Embassy and the Korea Chamber of Business (KorCham) in Buon Ma Thuot city on
June 16. 

The event drew the participation of 50 Korean
firms and more than 300 businesses from the Central Highlands. 

At the seminar, Central Highlands provinces
introduced their potential, advantages and investment projects, mostly in high-tech
agriculture, processing industry, clean energy and tourism. 

Encompassing Dak Lak, Gia Lai, Kon Tum, Dak Nong
and Lam Dong provinces, the Central Highlands is regarded as an important
strategic area in terms of socio-economic development, national defence and
security of countries.

Located on the trans-Asia axis, the region connects with
Laos, Cambodia, Thailand and Myanmar to the west, and with central and
southeast coastal provinces and deep-water seaports to the east. 

The region has a lot of potential and advantages
for hi-tech agricultural and forestry development, renewable energy, and ecological
and cultural tourism. 

According to the Steering Committee for Tay
Nguyen, regional gross domestic product surpassed 151 trillion VND (6.56
billion USD) in 2016, up 7.47 percent annually while gross regional domestic
product per capita hit 39.56 million VND (1,720 USD), up 8.5 percent. 

The region earned over two billion USD from
exports, up 25.5 percent and 14.8 percent from 2015.-VNA
