Actively support enterprises
In 2023, many enterprises had to downsize or even stop operations. With the spirit of accompanying enterprises, the Chairman of the PPC said that the PPC has organized 14 Steering Committee meetings to resolve difficulties for enterprises in implementing real estate projects. At the same time, the PPC has regularly organized meetings and dialogues with industry associations and enterprises; directed the district People's Committee to meet periodically (every 2 weeks) to remove difficulties for people and business households in the area. The PPC also focused on supporting enterprises with the sharing and progressive spirit for enterprises to recover and develop.
The PPC actively solves difficulties for enterprises
Through the meetings, the Steering Committee resolved a number of issues such as identifying the basic legal foundation and common handling principles to resolve similar problems so that departments, branches and localities can proactively implement them, thereby, many regulations that are no longer appropriate have been adjusted, supplemented and amended; accurately identifying bottlenecks and blockages that need to be removed to focus on solving or propose solutions to the Central Government; resolving specific proposals for each enterprise and project under local authority; continuing to authorize specialized agencies and district-level People's Committees to perform a number of tasks.
Some typical issues and cases that the province has specifically resolved. Such as prices of resettlement land, rubber group land, Lego and CapitaLand projects, relocating the power grid, granting land certificates to 22 Becamex resettlement projects, etc. Currently, many enterprises have been operating stably and there are also some enterprises expanding production, with a need to recruit many workers. Many investors have continued to choose Binh Duong as an investment destination (in 2023, attracted FDI capital reached 1,467 million USD and 81,819 billion VND of registered business capital, equivalent to 3.37 USD).

Chairman of the PPC Vo Van Minh explains at the 13th Meeting - the 10th Provincial People's Council about a number of contents proposed and reflected by voters and deputies of the Provincial People's Council
Long traffic jams often occur during rush hour at Pham Ngoc Thach - My Phuoc - Tan Van intersections, Phuoc Kien 5-way intersection, partly due to vehicles not being allowed to enter the bus priority lane. Currently, the Pham Ngoc Thach Road to the new city has 1 lane reserved for bus operations, but the bus traffic is low, while the traffic on other lanes is high, leading to inadequacies in traffic organization. Acknowledging this, the province has directed the transportation branch and Thu Dau Mot City People's Committee to study adjusting bus-only lane signs to signs for cars and buses to ensure convenience for circulation and overcome traffic congestion.
In addition, the province has been focusing on drastically accelerating the implementation of surveillance camera installation to serve traffic management, security and order and manage administrative violations in the area (including Pham Ngoc Thach Road and the road to the Provincial Administration Center).
