According to the Dong Nai Department of Industry and Trade, there are 9,839 rural industry establishments in the southeastern province, creating jobs for nearly 83,000 workers. In 2019, the rural industrial production value reached nearly VND63.7 trillion, accounting for 9.5 percent of total production value of the whole industrial sector. However, the majority of establishments are small and micro, with household businesses accounting for 85 percent, hampering the progress of rural industry due to poor production capacity and low technology. The inability of rural industrial establishments to improve the product value chain is due to limitations in joint ventures, production scale expansion and human resources.

In order to overcome these difficulties, the provincial Industry Promotion and Development Consultancy Center recently launched a team of associates to serve the state management of industry promotion, and implement industry promotion at the commune level to help organizations and individuals invest in expanding production. In the first period (2020-2021), a pilot program with a 20-member team is being conducted in three districts with strong industry and handicraft development - Xuan Loc, Nhon Trach and Trang Bom. In the second period (2022 - 2025), the center will expand the pilot and increase the total number of industry promotion associates to a maximum of 65.

Rural industry establishments play an important role in building a new countryside, generating job opportunities and improving incomes. The provincial Department of Industry and Trade continues to focus on selecting eligible rural industrial establishments for promotion projects.

According to its plan, Dong Nai Province’s Industry Promotion and Development Consultancy Center will have seven projects in 2020 supporting the application of advanced machinery for agricultural products and food processing funded by the local industry promotion budget of over VND1.8 billion and national industry promotion budget of VND300 million.
