The northeastern coastal province currently has 23 ICs with a total area of 615.46 hectares. Projects in the ICs have created jobs for nearly 5,000 workers with an annual production value of nearly VND4 trillion.
This year, the Cong Khanh 1 IC (Hong Linh Town) officially started infrastructure construction with total capital of more than VND255 billion invested by the Industrial Development Investment Joint Stock Company on an area of 45 hectares. It is expected to go into operation between the third quarter of 2023 and the first quarter of 2024.
At Duc Tho IC, the GS Central Region Investment Joint Stock Company launched a technical infrastructure project expected to attract secondary investors operating in various industries, contributing to economic restructuring, creating jobs, and reducing environmental pollution. So far, three secondary investment projects have been approved in the IC, including a packaging factory of Song La Xanh company (2.5ha), phase 1 with investment capital of VND80 billion, creating jobs for 320 workers; a VND130 billion garment factory invested by Appareltech Ha Tinh Garment Export Company Limited (6.5 ha) phase 1, creating 3,500 jobs; and Viet Hai commercial concrete and prefabricated structures factory (3.5ha) with total investment of VND100 billion, creating jobs for 50 workers.
Despite the active investment, the occupancy rate of local ICs is insufficient, with an average of 57.98 percent at 13 ICs managed by district-level people’s committees and 38.03 percent at 10 others invested by various enterprises.
According to the provincial Department of Industry and Trade, the ICs have mobilized investment from all economic sectors to serve the development of industrial and craft production, while making use of available land, raw materials and human resources.
Under its IC development planning, by 2030 Ha Tinh strives to have 46 ICs with a total area of 1,988ha, expanding to around 2,348ha after 2030.
Leaders of the Ha Tinh Provincial People’s Committee have asked localities to coordinate with the provincial Department of Industry and Trade to review the IC development planning, with attention paid to the locations, size and spheres of operation in each IC; the impact of IC expansion on urban and tourism development, and traffic connectivity to ensure synchronization and efficiency of the expanded ICs.
