Director of the department Nguyen Thanh Truc said the locality has 29 IPs, with 27 of them put into operation on a combined area of 12,743 ha, and 12 industrial clusters with a total area of 790 ha.
In 2018, investors in IPs and industrial clusters have paid attention to fostering promotion activities and investment for upgrading infrastructure. Around VND276 billion ($11.8 million ) were invested into developing industrial infrastructure facilities.
The locality has attracted over $1.3 billion from foreign investors and VND5.19 trillion from domestic ones into IPs and industrial clusters.
Truc said in 2018, enterprises operating in the IPs have disbursed $2 billion for the investment in workshops and equipment serving their production and business. Their revenue hit $28.5 billion so far, and their exports, $17 billion, making up 67.2 percent of Binh Duong’s export turnover.
The local authority has directed investors to build IPs in accordance with the adjusted planning approved by the Prime Minister, according to which Binh Duong will have 33 IPs with a total planning area of 14,790 ha. The approval for expansion of Bau Bang and Cay Truong IPs is hoped to help the locality attract more investment to promoting service industry and urban development.
The provincial People’s Committee said that along with implementing socio-economic development goals in the 2016-2020, attention will be paid to planning expanding and upgrading IPs towards meeting the demand of investors.
The establishment of IPs and industrial clusters has created a key momentum to promote Binh Duong’s economic development, especially in processing and manufacturing industry. The province’s industrial production value accounts for 9.7 percent of the nation, and 24 percent of the Southeast region
