The southern province of Dong Nai attracted 214 million USD in foreign direct investment (FDI) in the first two months of this year, accounting for 34 percent of the country’s total FDI.

Among the seven FDI projects granted new FDI licences, that of the Japanese corporation Terumo Medical in Long Duc Industrial Park is the largest, with 98.9 million USD in capital investment. The company specialises in manufacturing and distributing medical products and equipment.

Also in the period, local industrial zones attracted as many as seven domestic investment projects with total registered capital of 947 billion VND.

The achievement was attributable to the province’s renewing investment incentives, focusing on large-scale capital investment projects and on services, supporting and high-tech industries.

The province continues to improve investment environment and open dialogue with businesses to promptly deal with any arising difficulties.

According to the provincial Department of Planning and Investment, processing-manufacturing, property trading, and science-technology are drawing foreign investors’ attention. -VNA
