Huge advantages when placing manufacturing plants in Hai Duong
Vietnam, after successfully fighting against the COVID-19 pandemic, has emerged as a safe investment destination for foreign investors.
Participating in a forum of Vietnam industrial real estate 2020, Ms. Tran Thi Hong Minh, Director of Central Institute for Economic Management, shared that in the context of the pandemic, the global economy has become unstable; therefore, investors will be more careful with their decision on the suitable locations and have a tendency to diversify their options.
According to a research done by JLL, the average leasing price of Northern industrial zones has reached $99/m2/leasing cycle – a 6.5% increase compared with the same period last year, while the price for ready-built factories has been steady at $4 to $5/m2. In Southern Vietnam, due to high demand, the average land price is estimated at $101/m2/leasing cycle – 12.2% higher than that in 2019.
In the North, Hanoi, Hai Phong, and Quang Ninh have usually been mentioned when it comes to investment attraction. However, recently, Hai Duong has turned into a “strong” competitor in this perspective.
Located near Hai Phong international seaport, Cat Bi airport, and Noibai International Airport, Hai Duong – together with Hai Phong and Quang Ninh – forms a key economic triangle for the NorthEast region to develop supporting industries, shipbuilding, export-oriented manufacturing plants, transportation services, ICD, and logistics services…
Moreover, a number of large global giants are doing business in the provinces near Hai Duong like Samsung, LG, Foxconn… With the trend of shifting supply chain, Hai Duong will definitely become an attractive investment destination for supporting industries, especially in plastics manufacturing fields.
Until 2020, construction master plans for 12 industrial zones have been approved with a total scale of 2,400 ha. 10 industrial zones, including An Phat Complex, have been established and operated.
With regard to labor resources, Hai Duong has over 1 million people at the working age, accounting for nearly 60% of the total population.
Investment in 02 industrial zones in 02 years
An Phat Complex is a new industrial zone (IZ) attracting many international investors to place their manufacturing plants. The current leasing ratio in this IZ has reached 65% and is expected to achieve 100% at the end of 2020.
The business model of An Phat Complex focuses on high technology, environmental-friendly activities, and one-stop integrated service.
In 2019, An Phat Holdings officially announced about investment strategy in Quoc Tuan – An Binh industrial zone, which is located in the west of 37 National Route. This step has been highly complimented by experts because the company has grasped the opportunities brought by the “supply chain shift” trend and the “China plus 1” strategy adopted by many nations.
The phase I of Quoc Tuan – An Binh Industrial zone will cover 180 ha and comes into operation from Q1, 2021.
