HẢI PHÒNG — KCN Vietnam, a leading local, sustainable industrial developer, has reported the successful land handover of two land plots in DEEP C Haiphong II Industrial Zone in the northern port city of Hải Phòng on Wednesday.
The land handover includes two plots of 10.6ha and 12.6ha, taking KCN Vietnam's presence to 23.2ha of land area within the industrial park.

Currently, this economic zone is home to eight industrial zones in Hải Phòng City. Under the current law, Đình Vũ – Cát Hải EZ enjoys the most generous investment incentives available in Việt Nam, making it an attractive option for foreign investors and domestic expansion.
According to Trần Huỳnh, Chief Operating Officer of KCN Vietnam: “Hải Phòng is a key location in our business strategy. Its upgraded infrastructure system and modern connectivity routes, favourable geographical location, and immense support from the Government have turned Hải Phòng into a city of heated industrial property."

Regarding the cooperation with DEEP C Industrial Zones, Trần recognises that: "DEEP C has made great strides towards the eco-industrial park goal, which aligns with our vision of being a sustainable developer. We hope there will be synergy between us developers to move Việt Nam towards a more sustainable industrial future".
