The Mekong Delta province of Tien Giang has devised numerous measures to fully explore local industrial parks (IPs) and industrial clusters (ICs).

Tien Giang is focusing on attracting investment in infrastructure facilities in IPs and ICs and developing multi-sector IPs with a wider range of products to meet domestic and export demand.

Efforts will be made in simplifying administrative procedures and facilitating operations of investors in the IPs, such as Tan Phuoc 1, Soai Rap Petroleum Service Zone, Gia Thuan 1 and 2 clusters.

According to Cao Minh Tam, head of the province’s Industrial Zones Management Board, the Government has approved planning for seven IPs on a combined area of over 2,083ha.

Currently, Tien Giang has established and put into operation four IPs on over 1,101ha, with total investment of nearly US$230 million.

Besides this, the province has put into operation four ICs -- An Thanh, Trung An, Tan My Chanh and Song Thuan.

So far, the IPs and ICs in the province have created jobs for 92,561 labourers, and 84 per cent of them work in the IPs.

In 2017, enterprises in the IPs target reaching VND58.5 trillion in industrial production value. — VNS
