Accumulated, in the first 5 months of the year, 56 new projects invested in IPs.

In particular, FDI increased by 124 million USD (equivalent to 86.7 percent) and DDI capital increased by 671 billion VND (equivalent to 28 percent).

So far, industrial zones in the province have attracted 1,588 investment projects, including 786 FDI projects and 802 DDI projects. Total investment capital (new and increased capital) was over 4,468 million USD and 89,532 billion VND.

Head of the LAEZA- Nguyen Thanh Thanh shared that there was a strong impact on production and business activities of domestic enterprises and import-export activities due to development of the Covid-19 epidemic in the world because many countries are taking anti-epidemic measures. Accordingly, the import-export activities of the FDI sector decreased over the same period. However, in Long An, the attraction of investment in IPs has decreased but not significantly compared to the same period, but the total new investment capital as well as the capital increase for the old project increased, this is a positive signal.

Currently, the LAEZA is actively supporting infrastructure investors in industrial parks to implement compensation and site clearance so that from now until the end of 2020, there will be at least 3 more IPs that can attract investors to directly produce and do business. Since then, it contributes to the province to achieve the socio-economic development goals as planned in 2020 and the following years./.
