According to Nguyen Thanh Liem, deputy head of the provincial Industrial Zones Management Board, the province will speed up administrative reforms and promptly remove difficulties facing businesses in investment attraction and production expansion.
The locality also has priority policies for companies investing in seafood processing for export and food processing for domestic consumption and export, he said.
Local industrial zones (IZs) have lured 91 investment projects with total registered capital of nearly 3.7 billion USD and created jobs for more than 82,000 labourers.
From the outset of the year, production value of businesses based in the IZs reached over 41.8 trillion VND (1.8 billion USD), a year-on-year increase of 17 percent.
Their export revenue stood at over 1.5 billion USD, hiking 26 percent from the same time last year and the strongest growth so far. Tien Giang is currently home to four industrial zones, namely My Tho, Long Giang, Tan Huong and Soai Rap Oil and Gas Services.
