At the conference

Accordingly, in the period of 2018 - 2020, Long An plans to send 1,000 local laborers abroad and 1,000 laborers will be sent abroad annually starting 2021 to 2025.

The move is under a scheme to export labor abroad signed by local authorities, aiming to tackle local unemployment. It is to reduce poverty, provide more job opportunities, contribute to socio-economic development and to allow the unemployed to earn more stable income as well as to develop an awareness of complying with workplace regulations.

In the period of 2011-2017, the province sent more than 600 laborers abroad. However, labor export has so far faced many difficulties resulting that the number of local laborers working abroad has remained still low, said the Deputy Director of Department of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs - Hoa Thanh Nien./.

Long An moves to attract more foreign investmentLong An moves to attract more foreign investment

According to Can, the province has stepped up investment promotion both inside and outside Vietnam, targeting big groups.

It has also implemented administrative reform well, improved the business and investment climate, and increased its ranking on the provincial competitiveness index, especially in the fields of investment, land, taxation, customs, and labour.

In addition, Long An has regularly organised dialogues with investors to help them deal with difficulties and speed up the implementation of projects, while at the same time working to build a convenient, open, and transparent business and investment environment.

Attention has been paid to intensifying tax inspections over foreign-invested enterprises to detect violations early in order to ensure equality in tax declaration and payment for businesses.

Since the beginning of the year, Long An has granted investment licences to 51 projects worth 193.8 million USD. Moreover, 91.1 million USD has been added to 50 existing projects in the period. To date, the province has attracted 928 FDI projects with a total registered capital of over 5.9 billion USD, mainly in the fields of garment and textiles, footwear, and food processing.

Taiwan (China) ranks first in both the number of projects and capital amongst the 37 nations and territories investing in the locality, with a total of 192 projects worth 1 billion USD. It is followed by the Republic of Korea, Japan, China, and Singapore.

The export turnover for FDI enterprises enjoyed an average growth of 27.6 percent per year during 1996-2016, with the value hitting 2.6 billion USD last year. The number of foreign-invested exporters rose from 18 in 1996 to 300 at the last count.

Nguyen Van Tieu, Director of the provincial Department of Planning and Investment, said that FDI enterprises have made significant contributions to the locality's industrial production and exports. Their contributions to the State budget have increased year after year, but only accounted for 22 percent of the province's total budget collection in 2017. 

The figure has yet to meet the enterprises' potential in terms of development investment, he said.

He added that FDI enterprises currently employ some 126,000 labourers, equal to nearly half of the locality's total labourers./.

Brackish water and ground water resources  Brackish water and ground water resources 
The large river system of Long An province connecting with Tien river and Vam Co rivers system is important loading ways and drainage for production as well as for daily life of people.

Vam Co Dong river starts from Cambodia, through Tay Ninh province and to Long An province: area of basin of 6.000 km2, the length through province of 145 km, the depth of 17 - 21 m. Thanks to water source passed from Dau Tieng lake with the flow of 18,5 m3/s, it supplements the irrigation for Duc Hue, Duc Hoa, Ben Luc districts and reduces the process of salinization of Vam Co Dong river through Soai Rap estuary. Vam Co Dong river connects with Vam Co Tay through horizontal channels and connects with Sai Gon, Dong Nai rivers by Thay Cai, An Ha, Rach Tra channels, Ben Luc river.

Vam Co Tay river with the length through province is 186 km, water source is mainly received from Tien river through Hong Ngu channel, satisfying the demand of irrigation for agricultural production and daily life of people.

Vam Co river with 35 km long, 400 m wide, emptying into Soai Rap estuary and flowing to the East Sea is the confluence of Vam Co Dong and Vam Co Tay rivers.

Rach Cat river (Can Giuoc River) situated in Long An province is 32 km long, with a small water flow in dry season and poor water quality due to receiving waste water source from urban area - Ho Chi Minh City, having a great effect on production and daily life of people.

In general, surface water source of Long An is not abundant, the quality of water is inappropriate in certain respects. Therefore, it does not meet the requirement of production and life.

According to assessment, reserves of ground water of Long An are not abundant and their quality is different and quite poor. Most of ground water source is in the depth from 50 - 400 meters under 2 horizones, Pliocene – Miocene.

However, the ground water source of province has many useful minerals which are exploited and served for daily life of people in the whole country.

In heavy rain or flood, with hurricane tide, it has often occurred flood in regions along the banks of river, especially lowland. To exploit efficiently surface water resource in Long An, in addition to channel expansion to create source, it is necessary to build more conservatoires in places where do not have sources.

In future, it is necessary to specify the reserves of ground water source, location, the reproductive capacity to have plan on effective and sustainable exploitation and use.​​​
