BINH PHUOC (VNS) — Construction of a US$1 billion urban area-industrial park began in the southern province of Binh Phuoc's Chon Thanh District last week.
Developed jointly by Becamex – Binh Phuoc JSC, a joint venture between Becamex IDC and Song Be Rubber Company, and others, the 4,633ha project is expected to attract investments of $3 billion when completed.
Of the area, 2,448ha will be earmarked for the industrial park, which will focus on certain sectors like electronics, information technology, telecom, food and agricultural processing, and others.
