The average project size is about 9.6 million USD. Binh Duong currently ranks third in Viet Nam in attracting foreign investment capital, after Ho Chi Minh City and Ha Noi.

Mr. Alexander Ziehe - Chairman of the GBA in Viet Nam speaks at the meeting

Expressing his impression of Binh Duong province's investment attraction, Mr. Alexander Ziehe - Chairman of the GBA in Viet Nam sent his thanks to Binh Duong's authorities for their continuous support, creating opportunities for direct dialogue and positive cooperation with the foreign enterprise community, including German enterprises. Binh Duong is one of the main locations for German investment projects, just after Ho Chi Minh City and Ha Noi. The main reasons for GBA members and new investors to consider Binh Duong as a potential investment location are due to its location which is near seaports and Ho Chi Minh City, a developed supplier system, and attracting a qualified local workforce. Furthermore, most of the province's industrial parks provide good service and infrastructure environments. The province's tax policy in attracting FDI is also a strong reason for enterprises to make investment decisions in Binh Duong.

Continue to improve the investment environment, attracting more German projects

The GBA in Viet Nam has nearly 400 member companies. German enterprises are very impressed with the open and professional environment that Binh Duong is establishing for foreign enterprises. However, to further facilitate investment and production and business of enterprises, German enterprises recommended that localities continue to prioritize solving infrastructure problems, especially main roads connecting Ho Chi Minh City, and traffic to the airport, creating favorable conditions for international business trips and ensuring prompt customer visits.

It is recommended that localities notify about changes and issue new policies for enterprises at least 3 months in advance, provide a minimum 6-month incentive period, and clearly announce any changes on all media in both Vietnamese and English.

 

German enterprises raise recommendations at the meeting

The digitalization of administrative procedures is also an issue of concern for German enterprises. "We recommend implementing a system of codes and signatures, as well as checking documents to limit paperwork and simplify procedures. At the same time, there should be an online monitoring and feedback system to receive and promptly resolve enterprise problems. The shift to digital will enhance productivity, speed, transparency, and cost efficiency," emphasized Mr. Alexander Ziehe - Chairman of the GBA in Viet Nam.

Besides, enterprises also want the province to continue simplifying customs procedures, import and export clearance; regulations on granting work permits to foreigners; regulations on fire prevention and fighting in granting construction permits; paying attention to sustainability factors such as net emissions, rooftop solar energy systems that meet green production, etc.

At the meeting, leaders of the province and departments, committees, branches, and localities of Binh Duong province directly discussed and answered questions from German enterprises and investors, as well as informed enterprises about the province's development directions in the coming time. Representatives of Becamex IDC Corp introduced to German enterprises the potential of industrial parks and investment opportunities in Binh Duong.

According to leaders of the Department of Planning and Investment, currently, Binh Duong province is promoting digital transformation to build a digital government, digital economy, and digital society, and build a new ecosystem to promote development. The province is committed to creating a transparent and investor-friendly business environment.

In the coming time, Binh Duong will continue to restructure the industrial network and upgrade existing industrial parks into smart industrial parks to focus on modernizing existing industries.

Therefore, the province prioritizes investors with a vision and strong application of high technology associated with environmental protection to create harmony between socio-economic development and green growth, contributing to building Binh Duong smart city to reach the international level.

 

Mr. Nguyen Loc Ha - Vice Chairman of the PPC speaks at the meeting

Speaking to conclude the meeting, Mr. Nguyen Loc Ha said that although the proportion of German investment projects in Binh Duong is still quite modest, hopefully in the near future, with the global economic pivot and local efforts, Binh Duong will be a potential destination for German enterprises with modern technology and advanced management.

On behalf of the provincial leaders, the Vice Chairman of the PPC welcomed German enterprises to invest in Binh Duong, and the Binh Duong provincial government pledged to create the most favorable conditions for enterprises; always accompany and support in terms of policies and investment in modern infrastructure to ensure that foreign enterprises in general, and German enterprises in particular, can feel safe to invest, produce and do business in the province.
