The province is focusing on the “Binh Duong Innovation Region” scheme with the Science and Technology Industrial Park and a start-up ecological system, and most notably the World Trade Centre in Binh Duong New City, he said.

He added that Vietnam’s investment incentives related to transport infrastructure for regional connectivity, logistics and quality workforce training will serve as momentum for Binh Duong to lure foreign investors.

On the occasion, he called on Taiwanese investors to look at modern and eco-friendly technology, sectors with less labour and high added value, finance, logistics, support industries, hi-tech agriculture, and especially the Science and Technology Industrial Park./.
