At the conference, Mr. Phan Van Mai, Chairman of the HCMC People's Committee, said that the city wants to listen to the opinions of investors, including their proposals, for authorities to prepare the legal framework, orientations, and conditions for enterprises to develop in the future.

Not only attracting new investments, the city also needs to restructure existing ones. HCMC is responsible for creating the space, legal framework and conditions to support enterprises to increase the value of projects.

At the conference, Ms. Le Bich Loan, Deputy Head of SHTP Management Board, announced preferential policies for investment in SHTP, as well as projects, such as smart factories and logistics centers, and introduced investors to the Science Park, which prioritizes research and development projects and activities.

According to her, in the coming time, investment attraction into SHTP will aim to draw projects with advanced technology, along with exploiting the strengths of established ecosystems.

Mr. Pham Tan Dat, a representative of an investor specializing in big data, said that the SHTP Management Board needs to have many programs to announce the new guidelines and policies of the city on attracting investment, as well as commitments on administrative procedures for investors to access investment in SHTP more easily.

Chairman Phan Van Mai affirmed that the city will make efforts to solve the investment licensing procedure, but many documents still take a long time, causing a loss of time and efforts of investors, with some projects two years late./.
