Tay Ninh (VNA) – The southern province of Tay Ninh saw 185 foreign-invested and domestic companies, or close to 70 percent of its total, across local industrial parks and economic zone registered to resume their operations as of September 27.

According to Ha Van Cung, head of management board of the Tay Ninh Economic Zone, the production resumption attracted 56,000 workers, or over 40 percent of the province’s total, returning to work.

To ensure COVID-19 prevention and control, the provincial authorities continue guiding firms to conduct the in-place production method, regular testing, and vaccinations for workers.

To date, nearly 30,000 labourers at the local industrial parks and economic zone have been vaccinated against COVID-19.

Tay Ninh currently houses six industrial parks in the planning of Vietnam's industrial parks approved by the Prime Minister, spanning a total natural land area of 3,969 ha. Five of them, covering 3,385 ha in total, have been licensed to operate, with their occupation rate reaching 61.14 percent. Before the fourth wave of COVID-19 hit Vietnam in late April, these parks had 268 enterprises operating with more than 133,000 employees./.
