Of them, 184 projects have officially operated, creating jobs for over 97,000 local labourers.

They also brought home 523 million USD from exports, up 60 percent from the same period last year, which contributed 153 billion VND to the state budget, a 2.8-fold increase from last year’s figure.

Among the prominent IPs are the Phuoc Dong – Boi Loi IP in Go Dau district with 23 projects, worth nearly 2 billion USD in FDI and over 300 billion VND (13.5 million USD) in domestic investment.
