Nguyễn Thanh Liêm, deputy head of the management board for Tiền Giang’s industrial parks, said that the province has 101 projects with total registered capital of VNĐ47.8 trillion renting over 529 hectares of land (which covers about 70 per cent of the available land at its four industrial parks).
The industrial production value of the companies at these parks within the first two months of the year was more than VNĐ12.2 trillion, 14.56 per cent higher than last year’s period. Exports were $423 million, more than 8 per cent higher than the same period last year.

Tiền Giang aims to attract 10 more projects this year and will further improve the investment climate, simplify procedures, inform companies of regulations, and help existing companies with their problems, authorities have said. — VNS
