In 2013, the Dak Lak Trade, Investment and Tourism Promotion Centre coordinated many major events and achieved important results to contribute to local socioeconomic development. The centre received and guided investment procedures for over 40 investors seeking investment opportunities in the province and organised many interdisciplinary meetings to advise the Provincial People’s Committee on resolving procedures for 13 project investors.
Regarding investment promotion, the centre has hosted many interdisciplinary meetings to collect opinions to work out 30 investment projects to advise the Provincial People’s Committee to submit to the Provincial People’s Council for approval. Besides, the centre has participated and organised investment promotion activities inside and outside the province like attending the second conference on investment promotion into the Central Highlands in Gia Lai province; collaborated with the Office of Provincial People’s Committee to organise a meeting with a business delegation from Ho Chi Minh City exploring investment opportunities in the province; delivered publications and materials on investment attraction at trade fairs, exhibitions, and published on the centre’s website. On the 30th day of every month, the centre reports the implementation of investment projects, difficulties and problems of projects, and checks sluggish projects to advise the Provincial People’s Committee to settle or revoke investment policies to make the local investment environment healthy. To improve the efficiency and feasibility of every investment project, the centre under the direction of the Provincial People’s Committee has coordinated with relevant departments to meet to agree on investment proposals and solutions sent to the Provincial People’s Committee to support investors quickly and lawfully.
