Long An seeks to attract investors to its industrial zones

Vietnam :Industrial zones and complexes are central to socio-economic development and attracting investors, the Long An Province Department of Industry and Trade has said.

They account for half of the Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta province’s US$4 billion annual trade, it said in a report.

Long An, which neighbours HCM City, has 28 industrial zones (IZs) and a similar number of industrial complexes (ICs), some operational and others under construction.

The 25 that are operational have attracted over 1,000 domestic and foreign projects worth over $5 billion.

Phan Nhan Duy, director of the province’s Department of Natural Resource and Environment, said the number of industrial zones and complexes have kept increasing in the province, and the focus is now on quality instead of quantity.

The province is now soliciting investment in them, he said.

Thai Hoa Industrial Zone in the Duc Hoa III Industrial Zone, for instance, is offering incentives such as tax holidays and flexible land leasing policies to attract high-tech companies.

Truong Van Trieu, head of the Long An industrial zones management, said many other IZs too are striving to offer the best incentives and facilities to investors.

But projects in the zones should be environment-friendly, he underlined.

The province does not welcome projects that harm to the environment, he said.

Long An has the highest economic growth rate of all provinces in the delta. It has good transport infrastructure and borders Cambodia.

Its average economic growth in the 2012-20 period is estimated at 13 per cent a year.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
