Long An has set up cooperative relations with foreign localities like Hyogo prefecture of Japan, Chungcheongnam-do province of the Republic of Korea, and Sacramento city of the US. It has also attracted many major investors, including the Vietnam-Singapore Industrial Park JV Co. Ltd of Singapore, Sojitz of Japan, and local conglomerate Vingroup.

The province is now home to more than 1,500 Vietnamese projects worth over 181 trillion VND (7.75 billion USD) and 941 FDI ones with total capital of nearly 6 billion USD, according to the provincial Department of Planning and Investment.

Aside from attracting investment, local authorities have also increased examining sluggish projects. As of early October, they revoked 11 foreign invested projects worth 40 million USD and 29 domestic ones worth almost 1.9 trillion VND (81.4 million USD), citing investors' lack of capacity.

Director of the department Nguyen Van Tieu said despite certain successes in investment attraction, the quality of many projects is not high. Most of them are small- or medium-sized, with capital of about 136 billion VND (5.8 million USD) per domestic project and 5.2 billion USD per FDI project. They focus on labour-intensive industries such as textile-garment and footwear, and few have specialised in supporting and hi-tech industries.

He said to attract more quality investments, local authorities will boost administrative reforms to create favourable conditions for investors to implement their projects.

Aside from strictly dealing with projects with slow implementation, they will also accelerate developing infrastructure, especially transport facilities and seaports.

Long An will step up investment promotion in suitable forms and prioritise major projects that are environmentally friendly and have high added value, Tieu noted, adding that authorities will also maintain dialogue with businesses to tackle obstacles to their activities in a timely manner./.

According to the report at the conference, the area of dragon fruit in the whole province is about 11,826 hectares, of which the fruit area is 9,587 hectares and the output is 320,000 tons. Last time, the consumption of dragon fruits is mainly from China, accounting for 70-80%. The rest is consumed in a number of countries and territories such as Thailand, Singapore, Korea, Europe, USA, Canada, Japan, Malaysia, Dubai, Newzealand, India, Australia, ... and consumption. domestic. Exports by non-quota routes still account for a relatively high proportion.

Due to the impact of acute respiratory infections caused by new strains of corona virus, limited traffic hindered trading activities, unexploited dragon fruit output from the end of January to the end of February 2020. 30,000 tons. In particular, in stock about 2,000 tons (cold storage period not exceeding 30 days), about 28,000 tons have not been harvested.

The amount of "rescue" by domestic consumption many people think that "like salt to the sea", because domestic consumption will be very modest. Moreover, besides dragon fruit, many other agricultural products such as jackfruit, durian, rambutan, etc. are also difficult due to hindering trade with China.

More specifically, a long-term, sustainable solution should be implemented in crop production, including dragon fruits, which is to organize production in the direction of linking and food safety in accordance with VietGap and Global Gap standards to avoid supplementary. into a major market like today.

Vice Chairman of Long An Provincial People's Committee - Pham Van Canh assigned Department of Industry and Trade to continue working closely with the Long An Dragon Fruit Association to grasp the situation, promptly report to the provincial leaders and the Ministry of Industry and Trade to promptly direct the next solution; actively connecting businesses in the province that perform deep processing; boosting domestic consumption; Export fresh fruits to markets outside China, reducing losses to farmers.​​

Pork at Co.op Mart, San Ha Foodstore in Long An province is provided by VISSAN Joint Stock Company (Vissan).

Information from the Provincial Department of Livestock, Veterinary and Aquatic Products, as of November 28, Long An has detected African swine fever in 3,121 pig farms, destroying 78,863 pigs, the amount of destruction was about 4,644 tons, estimated support funding to destroy over 139 billion VND. Currently, in some localities after the isolation of African swine fever, farmers re-breed pig herds but on a small scale. However, the number of porkers in the province has reduced significantly, to about 82,000 pigs, not enough to supply the market.

At the meeting, a representative of Vissan said, to prepare for the Lunar New Year, the company has reserved a large amount of pigs to serve the market. Accordingly, the amount of meat provided will double. Slaughterhouses also share the number of live pigs in the population but not much.

Director of the Department of Industry and Trade - Le Minh Duc said that the initiative of Vissan is a positive signal. Particularly for slaughterhouses, it is necessary to link with breeding households inside and outside the province to prepare a sufficient source of live pigs for Tet. He suggested businesses, slaughterhouses, local functional agencies not to be subjective, regularly monitor the supply and demand situation, change in pork prices in the management area, timely provide information about Industrial and commercial facilities. If there are abnormal developments, the Department of Industry and Trade will coordinate with large enterprises of the province and Ho Chi Minh City to transfer the supply of pork and other products to stabilize the market to avoid the situation of hoarding goods and high price./.

Delegates participate in the dialogue

This this dialogue, transport infrastructure in Duc Hoa district was a problem that many enterprises were most concerned about. Enterprises reflected that many contiguous roads between Ho Chi Minh City and Long An were degraded, there were often traffic jams at rush hours; the roads to some industrial parks and clusters were badly damaged. Spontaneous markets, trolleys of small traders who sold goods and encroached on the roadway were the cause of traffic congestion but the authorities had no timely solutions.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Mr. Tran Van Can recognized and highly appreciated the interest of enterprises with the conference. At this meeting, enterprises should frankly raise problems and difficulties in the production and business process in Long An. The provincial leaders would always listen to the thoughts, aspirations and legitimate requests and proposals of enterprises, thereby, promptly solving problems and difficulties, contributing to stabilizing and promoting production and business operation of enterprises.
