Referring to Long An agricultural products available in the world market, we cannot forget dragon fruit. Currently, the province has over 10,300 hectares dragon fruit with the annual output of over 200,000 tons. Dragon fruit is mainly supplied to Chinese market (80%), other markets: Japan, Thailand, USA, Australia, etc. account for about 5%, and the rest is consumed in the country.
In addition fruit, banana is also entering the fastidious Japanese market. Director of Huy Long An Co., Ltd (Duc Hue district). Currently, total output of banana in Tay Ninh and Long An is over 4,000 tons/year, of which 40% is exported to Japan. In addition to Japanese market, the Company also exports this fruit to China and Malaysia, while is negotiating to sell to Korea.
Long An rice comes to the international market
In addition, rice is also a popular item in the world. Currently, there are 21 enterprises which are allowed to export rice in the province. From beginning of 2018 to present, rice export enterprises bought 815,000 tons of paddy, up 4% over the same period in 2017.
Banana is also one of exported agricultural products of Long An
Vice Chairman of the provincial People's Committee – Pham Van Canh said that the producers should change the thinking of production by movement to by cooperation, association, and complying with guidelines of functional agencies on the implementation of planning and safety production procedures. Besides, encouraging activities of innovation, creativity and application of science and technology to production and business, enhancing material and technical investment for research, and transferring science and technology must also be performed./.

Until the end of 2004, roadways in province was 1.698km, in which asphalt roads were 474km, accounting for 27,9%, gravel roads were 1053km (62%), other kinds of roads were 171km (10,1%) (excluding rural roads).
/. Road traffic :
Until the end of 2004, roadways in province was 1.698km, in which
asphalt roads were 474km, accounting for 27,9%, gravel roads were 1053km
(62%), other kinds of roads were 171km (10,1%) (excluding rural roads).
Total length of bridge was 15.799 m
long/346 bridges, in which concrete bridges were 7.099 md/123 bridges,
girder bridges were 6812 md/194 bridges, others were 1889 md/29 bridges.
Density of road by area increased from 0,198 Km/Km2 in 1991 to 0,285 Km/Km2 in 2000 and 0,359 km/Km2 in 2004.
of road by population increased from 0,667 Km/1.000 persons in 1991 to
0,957 Km/1000 person in 2000 and 1,130 km/1000 person in 2004.
general, roadways system is prioritized to invest, helping actively to
develop production and improve living standard of population. However,
there also remain some roads not satisfying the demand of
transportation, lacking of synchronism between roads and bridges, not
forming uninterrupted branches of roads.
of the Southern communications network has not been increased, mainly
improved, upgraded and expanded, except some rural roads. In Nothern
region, the communications network has developed rapidly, contributing
to reclaimation, reallocation of population. To date, traffic roads are,
however, quite scattered in this region, province road only has some
roads just for cars, branches of roads accessible to residential
clusters have not been built yet. Therefore this has influenced to
travel and organization of life of rural people.
present, the system of bridges and roads have been built synchronously
in term of capacity in most of main roads from province to district and
roads to industrial zones. However, there still remain some roads with
low-capacity bridges, constraining the development of cargo
recent years, although border belt ways have been invested, they are
mainly small-scale rural roads, asynchronous bridge roads, inluencing to
the national defense and smuggling fighting.
recent years, the construction of rural transportation has become a big
movement, combining from the budget and contribution of population. At
present, 156 over 188 communes have car roads to the center (accounting
for 83%), 32 communes under 7 districts do not have car roads to center,
including 18 roads with total length of 126 km and 140 bridges/6637m
recent years, the investment in traffic industry has been constantly
increased. However, the annual budget for maintenance is low. Therefore
the roads are degrading quickly. According to economists, it is
necessary for capital given priority to maintain other than to invest in
building. It will bring socio-economic efficiency.
recent years, the roadways system has been considered and invested by
the province, but in general it is not extensive and synchronous,
influencing to the investment attraction and socio-economic development
Since 1995, the waterways network has not increased, with scale of 2.559 km. Density of waterways by area was 0,59 Km/Km2
and by population was 1,8 Km/ten thousand of people with main waterways
of Vam Co river, Vam Co Dong, Vam Co Tay, Rach Cat river . . .
on rural waterways, especially districts in Dong Thap Muoi, people can
travel by boats from house to house, from region to region and boats are
the main means of transport, means of living of many families in Dong
Thap Muoi. Communes where do not have car roads to center will travel by
the waterways network, at present, still depends mainly on natural
advantage, not developing the existing potentials, lacking in support
system such as marking buoy, local waterways signal. The phenomena of
appropriation of flow and way of boats, breach of protective corridors
of local waterways such as construction of house and building materials
yard, holding a market, etc. have not controlled properly. Many
waterways have had great siltation through development in many years but
they have not dredged and influenced to travel capacity of means.
Long An has great potentials of waterways but they are difficulties and obstacles for building road traffic.

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.

|Natural condition Characteristics of geological structure in Long An province||Natural condition Characteristics of geological structure in Long An province|
Long An is located in the South Eastern edge of Da Lat zone. This is independent tectonic - metallogenetic zone, with foundation of Precambrian continental crust, subsided in early – middle Jura and experienced epicontinental regime in late Mesozoi.
The East Sea tide in Soai Rap estuary has amplitude of high from 3,5 to 3,9 m. The process of intruding salt water is deeper and longer into the inland. The reason is the strong operation of tide, northeast wind, less water from upstream and especially many exploitations of surface water in dry season. In the past, Vam Co Tay river had been intruded by salt water in Tuyen Nhon of about 5 km, since 1993, it has reached to Vinh Hung. The salinization has started from January to June with 2 - 4 gam/liters. The salinity of Vam Co Dong river has gradually reduced by the influence of Dau Tieng lake.
Besides, the earth tends to be hotter, facilitating sea level raising, developing the salinization deeply to inland.
The salinization has changed the ecological system of region which has been stable for many years, resulting in the influence to production and daily life of people. To reduce this process, should not exploit too much in dry season and the investment in irrigation systems should consider the impact of salt water intrusion on the general ecological system.
At the end of Mesozoi and in Kainozoi, Da Lat zone was activated forcefully. In Neogen – Quaternary, this region involving Mekong basin was subsided forcefully and filled up by terrigenous sediments . In Long An province, it mainly developed formations of sediments of Neogen Quaternary:
Sediments of conglomerate, sandstone, clay siltstone of Can Tho formation (N21ct) have large area of allocation.
Gravelstone, sandstone, siltstone, claystone of Nam Can formation (N22nc) have large area of allocation.
Formations of stream deposition including pebble, gravel, grit, sand, clay, kaolin of Cu Chi formation (aQ23cc) are allocated mainly in Loc Giang, Duc Lap Thuong, My Hanh Bac, Hoa Khanh Dong, An Ninh Tay communes under Duc Hoa district.
Formations of sea and rivers depositions including silt, clay with few gypsum of Moc Hoa formation (amQ21mh) are allocated mainly in areas of Duc Hue, Moc Hoa, Vinh Hung, Tan Hung districts.
Formations of stream deposition including pebble, gravel, grit, sand, clay kaolin of Hau Giang formation (mQ21hg) are allocated mainly in areas of Tan Thanh, Moc Hoa, Tan Hung districts.
Formations of sediments of Middle-Upper Holocen (aQ22-3) including stream deposition (sand, silt, clay), river - marsh (silt, clay, remains of plants and peat), are shelf deposits, alluvial flat and river bed deposit, allocating most of areas of districts in Long An province.
According to result of geological survey at the ratio of 1:200.000, it is recorded that there are 2 main fault systems in the North Western - South Eastern direction and North Eastern - South Western direction. These fault systems were found according to geophysical materials and indirect geological signs.

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./.
