According to experts, building an "ecological", "model" industrial park is an inevitable trend today. Moreover, with the success of COVID-19 pandemic prevention, Vietnam will be the destination for foreign investors in their restructuring process.
Ms. Nguyen Thi Thao Nhi - Chairman of the Board of Directors - General Director of Thanh Binh Phu My Joint Stock Company (the investor of Phu My III Specialized Industrial Park) - said that so far this industrial park has attracted 20 foreign investment projects mostly from Japan, with a total investment of tens of thousands of billion dong. This specialized industrial park has an ecosystem that is qualified enough to attract large-scale industrial projects with modern technology.
However, there are still some barriers such as: the time to carry out the administrative procedures is long while the time to allow the plant to test operation is only six months is too short. In addition, there is a lack of infrastructure such as liquid goods import ports, and the interest rates for investment loans for industrial development are not preferential.
Most of the opinions at the seminar proposed to quickly promote connected traffic projects such as Bien Hoa - Vung Tau Expressway, Ben Luc - Long Thanh Expressway and Phuoc An Bridge.
"Infrastructure around IPs is very important to attract investment in IPs. Regional cooperation is a must to optimize advantages and to protect the environment," JICA (Japan) commented.
Prof. Dr. Nguyen Mai said that in order to actively participate in the industrial revolution 4.0, new industrial zones must be built to attract FDI projects with large scale, modern technology and sustainability. Because after Vietnam's success in preventing epidemic COVID-19, it is expected that there will be a new wave of investment, with a new structure up to tens of billions of dollars. With the industrial park of Ba Ria - Vung Tau, this position suggested that the development is artificial intelligence, robot, development of "night economy", clean and circulating agriculture.
