BÌNH DƯƠNG – Authorities in Bình Dương Province, in collaboration with Becamex IDC – a leading developer of industrial, urban and transportation infrastructure in Việt Nam – held an online conference on Thursday to promote Thai investment in the southern province.
Despite COVID-19, foreign capital poured into the province in the first three months of 2021 exceeded US$400 million.
Boasting an attractive and open business climate, the accumulated number of FDI projects in Bình Dương as of the end of February neared 4,000 worth close to $38.8 billion. As such, the province ranked third nationwide in terms of FDI attraction, just behind HCM City and Hà Nội.
Thailand has so far injected over $647 million in 39 projects in Bình Dương, making it the 12th-largest of 65 countries and territories investing in the province. Thai investors have a preference for producing high-quality plastic products and industrial plastics, and for manufacturing and assembling civil electrical products.
Sanan Angubolkul, President of the Thailand-Việt Nam Business Council and Vice Chairman of the Thai Chamber of Commerce, said Bình Dương’s dynamic growth had long been on the radar of the Thai business community.
Nguyễn Thanh Trúc, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, highlighted that there was tremendous space for investment cooperation between Bình Dương and Thailand to grow, adding that local authorities would always create favourable conditions for Thai investors. — VNS
