Kien Giang Province plans to improve the industrial sector by 2030 by making it more sustainable, efficient and environmentally friendly.

The province said it would try to integrate more into the country’s industrial production network, as well as focus more on production and export of cement, textiles, garments and leather.

Kien Giang also wants to attract more foreign investors and provide financial aid to hi-tech businesses that could contribute to industrial reform.

In addition to improving infrastructure, the province will develop its industrial clusters and zones, and small craft villages, as well as conduct research on more environmentally friendly technologies.

Smaller regions within the province will focus more on their strengths. For example, Long Xuyen Quadrilateral region will focus on mineral harvesting, construction materials, and agricultural product exports; Tay Song Hau on agriculture, textile and garments, leathers and mechatronics; and U Minh Thuong on fishing, aquaculture and electricity.

According to the province’s Department of Industry and Trade, the province targets reaching an industrial production target of VND221 trillion (US$9.7 billion) and an industrial sector development fund of VND450 trillion by 2030. – VNS
