The sum was equivalent to about 38 percent of the figure for the same period last year and fulfilled more than 12 percent of the target set for this year.

The outcome was attributable to the drastic direction of the municipal authorities and significant efforts of localities and sectors involved, particularly the Hai Phong Economic Zone Authority.

Notably, the authority has recently granted investment registration certificates for two housing projects that can accommodate about 14,000 workers at the Dinh Vu – Cat Hai economic zone.

Last year, the city’s foreign direct investment attraction surged over 91.4 percent year on year to more than 3.1 billion USD./.
