Mai Son taps potential to attract investment

Mai Son district is located in the province’s key economic region, with arterial roads passing through such as National Highways 6, 37, and 4G. Favourable geographical location, large natural area, concentrated raw material production areas of sugarcane, cassava and coffee, and fruit tree areas serving processing factories are important conditions to attract investment to the district.

With the policy of creating favourable conditions for businesses and individuals to invest in production and business, Mai Son has proactively coordinated with departments and sectors to implement infrastructure investment programmes and projects, especially key traffic routes, and electricity and water systems, thus facilitating enterprises’ production and business activities, creating a fair competitive environment among businesses and economic sectors, and attracting more investments in the district.

In addition, the district has directed specialised agencies to review and simplify administrative procedures under their authority to create favourable conditions for people and businesses, especially in the fields of land, business, and construction licensing; ensure that over 90% of administrative procedures are carried out in accordance with the modern one-stop mechanism, and 100% of communes and town apply this mechanism.

To date, the district People's Committee has provided 3- and 4-level online public services for 242 administrative procedures. Modern software for receiving and returning dossiers has been deployed for 12 fields, 273 administrative procedures at the district level, and 27 procedures of agencies. At the same time, it has also built plans, clearly defined goals, tasks and solutions, and set out responsibilities of specialised departments and divisions, and regularly urged them to carry out their tasks, and create favourable conditions for businesses to quickly complete projects and put them into operation.

In 2023 alone, Mai Son participated in the appraisal of six new investment projects and five with capital adjustments, with a total capital of over 993 billion VND (39.8 million USD). Since 2020, the provincial People's Committee has granted in-principle approvals and investment certificates to 26 projects totalling over 3.1 trillion VND. To date, some projects have been put into operation, such as Song Lam Tay Bac fertiliser factory; Doveco Son La fruit and vegetable processing centre, and the project to renovate and increase capacity of the Phu Yen Tapioca Starch Joint Stock Company Branch’s Son La Tapioca Starch Factory.

From now to 2025, Mai Son will continue to prioritise attracting investment in the fields of agricultural and industrial production and processing, and service infrastructure; mobilise resources to invest in urban technical infrastructure and increase the rate of urbanisation; and develop tourism associated with tapping agricultural potential, climate, cultural identity and people.

With its potential and advantages, the locality will also attract investment selectively, prioritising investors using new technology and having effective environmental protection plans during the production process, thus contributing to promoting socio-economic development, and creating more jobs for locals.
