General Director of Deep C Bruno Jaspaert welcomed the delegation and provided an overview of the reasons for choosing the north as an investment location. In Hai Phong and Quang Ninh, DEEP C has developed five zones and leased 3,400ha of land, becoming the largest industrial zone developer in Vietnam and the leading eco-industrial park in the country. Delegation members were also introduced to the company's newly launched Deep C Farm project and given the opportunity to take a tour of its vast facilities.
 
Afterwards, the delegation met with the Hai Phong City People's Committee, including its Chairman Nguyen Van Tung, Vice-Chairman Hoang Minh Cuong and other agency representatives from Hai Phong's Economic Zone Authority (HEZA), Department of Industry and Trade (DOIT), Department of Planning and Investment (DPI), and Department of Foreign Affairs (DOFA). 
   
   
Chairman Tung 
welcomed EuroCham's delegation and highlighted Hai Phong's rapid progress toward becoming a premier business location. 
 
Vice Chairman Cuong opened a discussion on opportunities and incentives for European investors. A variety of questions from the delegation were then answered by Hai Phong's representatives. 
 
Digital transformation and sustainable development are major focuses of Hai Phong, which provides ample opportunities for European investment, especially in the power and IT sectors.
 
Chairman Alain Cany expressed his gratitude for the warm reception. Also, he praised DEEP C as a European investor ambassador that has enhanced trade and sustainable development in Vietnam. He added that EuroCham will engage closely with Hai Phong agencies to promote quality European investment. 
  
  
A meeting followed with representatives of Quang Ninh's People's Committee and various departments and agencies from the province.
 
Quang Ninh Economic Zone Authority Director Hoang Trung Kien presented an informative and comprehensive introduction, stating that Quang Ninh is a growth pole of the north. Foreign consultants are helping the province maximise its potential. With its continuous efforts in digital transformation and attractive incentives, Quang Ninh has retained its top position in the Provincial Competitiveness Index (PCI).
  
  
Furthermore, Mr. Kien shared information about the Quang Ninh Investment Promotion Agency, whose members are leaders of all departments of the People's Committee. 
  
  
The agency and the People's Committee are calling for investments in infrastructurelogistics, and energy (onshore and offshore wind).
