In recent years, a series of industrial zones in Vinh Phuc have been established, generating jobs and stable incomes for local labourers.

The locality is now home to eight industrial parks with 328 enterprises, which have so far employed nearly 110,000 labourers.

Construction of a number of new IP projects has been sped up. Notably, the Thang Long - Vinh Phuc industrial park, whose construction started in September 2017, covers an area of over 213 ha in Thien Ke and Tam Hop communes of Binh Xuyen district. It is invested by Japan's Sumitomo Group.

So far, the IP’s infrastructure facilities have been basically completed. As many as 18 businesses are operating in the IP, providing jobs to thousands of employees.

Once completed and fully put into operation, the IP is expected to attract 60 to 70 investment projects from Japan, and about 20,000 to 22,000 employees.

The provincial People's Committee has ordered departments and sectors to carry out more measures to effectively respond to and control the COVID-19 pandemic, especially in industrial parks.

The local authorities have paid special attention to helping businesses remove difficulties caused by the pandemic and applying information technology to support taxpayers./.
