Typically, the project of building warehousing services, storing goods, and leasing warehouses of Lotte Eco Logis Co., Ltd. invested in Phu An Thanh IP (Ben Luc District). This is also a foreign-invested project that was granted an investment certificate by the provincial government after more than 4 hours of receiving all documents. This makes a good impression on investors because the process of appraising documents and issuing investment certificates is quite quick, especially at a time when the Covid-19 epidemic is complicated. Since then, the province always strives to accompany and create the most favorable conditions for businesses choosing Long An as an investment destination.

In April 2021, the province also successfully organized a seminar on orientation to develop hi-tech economic regions, with the participation of more than 100 representatives of large corporations from Korea, the United States, Germany, etc. The seminar is a premise to form a developed industrial ecosystem with advanced technology, reducing the risk of environmental pollution and bringing high added value to the economy.
