VGP - The southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau has for many years been an ideal destination for foreign investors thanks to its natural advantages and comprehensively developed infrastructure in addition to attractive incentives.

The development strategy for 2020 continues to focus on completing the road system connecting the province with other localities in the region, including roads connecting the port system with Highway 51, industrial zones and logistics centers; developing the system of inland ports and warehouses around the Cai Mep-Thi Vai port; and promoting investment in railway lines connecting the Cai Mep-Thi Vai port and stations in provinces and cities in the southern key economic zone.

The province has many advantages for foreign investment, such as good infrastructure, developing port services, low labor costs, and high economic growth. In 2020, the province will invest strongly in the Cai Mep-Thi Vai port system and logistics centers in order to strengthen connections with European supply chains.

It will identify major global corporations for soliciting investment.

Activities to promote investment, trade and tourism will be undertaken together with partners such as Japan, South Korea, Australia, North America, Russia, and ASEAN.

Another bright spot for FDI in Vietnam in general and Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province in particular is the signing of free trade agreements that will promote exports and create jobs.
