The southern province of Tay Ninh is undertaking maximum efforts to attract investments to its textiles and support industries in a bid to boost the province’s economy and promote these sectors.

Accordingly, the Tay Ninh People’s Committee ratified the establishment of a textile and support industry area of 278ha in Thanh Thanh Cong industrial zone. Furthermore, 100ha of the Moc Bai Border Gate Economic Zone have been converted into a TMTC textile and support industry zone.

Chairwoman of Tay Ninh’s People’s Committee Nguyen Thi Thu Thuy said the textile industry can have extremely negative impacts on the local environment, particularly the dyeing process. Therefore, enterprises investing in the locality will have to obey strict rules on waste water treatment.

Recently, six investors put close to 1.2 billion USD into the textile and support industry area in Phuoc Dong Boi Loi Industrial Zone (Go Dau District). A number of fabric manufacturing facilities and suppliers have begun their operations here, creating jobs for more than 10,000 people.-VNA
