The IPMB has a number of main solutions, as below.
Firstly, the IPMB highly focuses on improving the investment and business environment that is favorable, equal, open, transparent and friendly to promote investment attraction, business development as well as the provincial competitive index.
Secondly, the infrastructure planning and investment in industrial parks must be done one step ahead while boosting up investment attraction in the industrial park infrastructure to ensure synchronization and availability of land funds to attract investment.
Hoa Phu Industrial Park is invested synchronously and modernly, helping promote the industrial development of Bac Giang province.
Thirdly, the quality of investment promotion work must be proactively and regularly improved, focusing on large corporations and businesses. Local authority will have appropriate support policies for large and important investors, prioritize attracting projects that greatly contribute to the budget, use little labor, have advanced technology and limit impact on the environment.
Finally, the IPMB strengthens state support and management for post-licensing investment activities; regularly grasps the situation and support to handle difficulties. Besides, the authority urges to speed up the implementation of investment projects, regularly propagates and disseminates legal regulations in all fields. At the same time, the IPMB promptly detects and proactively coordinates with functional agencies to inspect, examine and strictly handle violations of laws on investment, construction and environmental protection.
