Covering 300ha in Tien Du and Tu Son districts, the Dai Dong-Hoan Son IZ will house environmentally-friendly projects in mechanical engineering, agro-forestry product processing, garment and consumer goods, and construction materials.
Saigon Tel has upgraded the Kinh Bac Information Technology Park and renamed it the Dai Dong-Hoan Son IZ in the hope of turning it into one of the leading industrial zones in the northern region.
The IZ has to date attracted 37 domestic and foreign investment projects with four currently operational, accounting for 55 percent of the zone’s area.
