Workers in Dong Dinh Long Cang Industrial Cluster, Can Duoc district
The industrial clusters include Tan Phu, Duc Thuan 2, My Quy Tay, Le Tran and Loi Binh Nhon. The total area of 5 industrial clusters is 196.3 hectares, with an investment capital of over VND 2,382 billion.
Thus, accumulated so far, Long An has 57 industrial clusters which were approved by the Provincial People's Committee to invest in infrastructure with a total area of 2,839.5 hectares, and a total registered investment capital of about VND 22,691 billion.
Currently, the province has 22 industrial clusters in operation with a total area of 1,095.5 hectares, attracting 544 projects with a total investment of VND 15,635 billion. Of which, there are 60 foreign direct investment (FDI) projects with a total investment of USD 209 million, and a rental land area of 586.65 hectares. The occupancy rate of industrial clusters in operation reaches 86.55%.
In the first 9 months of 2019, the industrial clusters in the province did not receive new secondary projects because they were almost full, or the remaining land was scattered in the industrial clusters so they could not meet the production and business needs of new investors on a larger area.
Therefore, the provincial People's Committee directed the Department of Industry and Trade to support enterprises to accelerate the investment in infrastructure of industrial clusters, ensuring at least 3 new industrial clusters to come into operation in 2019 (including Vinh Khang Vissan and Sao Vang as planned). At the same time, the provincial People's Committee requests the Department of Industry and Trade to advise on the issue of investment policy for the remaining industrial clusters under the Proposal to adjust the planning for development of industrial clusters in the province so that by 2020, the province will have 62 industrial clusters with a total area of 3,106.5 hectares./.
