Tien Giang (VNA) – The industrial production in the Mekong Delta province of Tien Giang grew by 1.13 percent to over 32.86 trillion VND (1.42 billion USD) in the first half of 2021, according to deputy head of the provincial Industrial Zones Authority Nguyen Thanh Liem.

The province’s industrial parks and clusters are currently home to 186 projects, employing more than 105,000 labourers. Of the number, 84 projects are invested by FDI firms, with total registered investment of nearly 2.98 billion USD.

From January-June, FDI enterprises generated more than 1.37 billion USD in revenues, up 3 percent year on year, while domestic firms’ revenues exceeded 5.67 trillion VND (245.78 million USD).

Those in industrial parks and clusters earned over 1.43 billion USD from exports during the period, a year-on-year increase of 13.67 percent. The growth is quite high, given that the COVID-19 resurgence is ravaging in many cities and provinces nationwide, including Tien Giang, said Liem.

In response to the pandemic, local factories have imposed tighter preventive rules against the virus to ensure safety for their workers while maintaining stable production./.
