The southern province of Long An leads the Mekong Delta region in industrial development and investment attraction, with 16 industrial parks and 760 registered projects, attracting a total investment of almost 3 billion USD.

Of the total, there are 251 foreign projects from 30 nations and territories with capital totalling 1.7 billion USD.

The fast development of industrial parks in the province over the past 15 years makes it one of the country’s five leading provinces and cities in the number of industrial parks.

The province sees the operation of 145 foreign enterprises and 215 domestic investors, creating jobs for over 70,000 Vietnamese workers and almost 1,000 foreigners.

At the parks, internal and external businesses generated an export value of 428 million USD and over 50 million USD respectively, contributing over 25 million USD to the state budget in the 15-year period.

According to Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Do Huu Lam, the management boards of industrial parks give priority to resolving administrative procedures to facilitate the implementation of investment projects in the locality.

In the coming time, Long An will continue to fully tap its potential and advantages, while accelerating administrative reform, fostering investment promotion and enhancing cooperation to further encourage socio-economic development.-VNA
