to shift about 15-20% of the supply chain from China to other countries.
Vietnam is a place that can quickly satisfy large and difficult orders. When
the Covid-19 subsides, many orders for shoes and bags will move to
to the previous hesitancy, Tran Thanh Trong, Chairman of Provincial Association
of Electrical Engineering, said that many enterprises in the association were
confident in their production capacity to participate in the market supply
chain, especially to immediately supply FDI enterprises in Binh Duong to
minimize transportation, import costs, reduce product costs, improve the
competitiveness of goods. In particular, many enterprises manufacture not only
simple products, such as screws, molds, plastic covers, packaging... but also
products with high added values, such as motor cores, electronic chips, circuit
many FDI enterprises, after a favorable investment period in Binh Duong, have
expanded their production scale and continued to increase investment capital in
factories. According to Tran Van Hiep, General Director of Dai Hoang Company
specializing in factory construction for foreign partners: “During the
epidemic, our company still worked to full capacity, and now we cannot receive
more orders. Customers regularly update production progress via Email, Zalo...

PORTAL - By the end of the third quarter of 2020, the import and export market in the province continued to show signs of recovery. Trade with countries and territories in the world has begun to grow. Orders of businesses in the province also increased gradually.
Number of orders rise steadily
to provincial Association of Leather Footwear and Handbags, provincial
enterprises have negotiated many new contracts. Some companies got orders for
September and October and are in talks with some partners about larger orders.
In particular, from the EU market, it is expected that many contracts will be
signed in last months of the year. Currently, many enterprises are planning to
boost production again. Enterprises also expressed confidence in the
"launching pad" EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) which will
help the footwear industry accelerate exports, grow turnover, offset the
decline from beginning of the year. It is forecasted that the export turnover
of footwear and handbags in the fourth quarter of 2020 would reach good growth

months of finding opportunities in difficult time, timber industry in September
has prospered, the expected growth figure is two figures compared to August (in
August, export turnover reached 500.5 million USD, up 5.1% over the previous
month). Up to now, many wood enterprises in the area have taken many orders of
partners, overtime working has grown steadily. According to the analysis of
Binh Duong Wood Processing Association, the reason for the rapid recovery is
that Vietnam's timber industry was affected by the pandemic, but most
businesses in Binh Duong were not disrupted in production, no factories were
blocked because of infections.
addition, interior market of the U.S., Europe also began to dynamic, and
Vietnamese enterprises benefited from the U.S.-China trade war. However, one
problem now is that raw wood imported from some countries is being interrupted,
causing the supply of timber to fluctuate and leading to a local lack. In
return, domestic supply meets the demand, thus enterprises still strive to
receive all new orders of customers. Moreover, enterprises seek to capture
trends on the world market, and especially the US market, to organize
re-investment in production in the direction of specialization, forming chain
links, developing large orders, and taking advantage of domestic raw materials.
- garment industry has also gradually recovered. Trade in many countries has
been cleared, hence exports are more favorable. According to Tran Thi Van, Head
of Sales Department of DS Vina Company (Dat Cuoc Industrial Park), in March,
April and May, their production decreased by about 30% - 50%. However, from
August 2020, situation of import and export was better. Up to now, number of
orders has increased from 30-50%, the company got orders for until March 2021.
It is expected that the company's sales would increase 80% compared to 2019. DS
Vina imported 14 machines to run new orders and meet development requirements
of the international integration.
attain active workforce
advantage for enterprises to return to the normal production cycle is the
stable number of employees, due to efforts to retain and care for workers'
lives during the Covid-19. Ms. Van also said that, from March to the end of
July, DS Vina, despite difficulties, maintained five working days per week and
non-working days, on which workers were still paid according to the regional
minimum wage. Employees feel secure about working at the company at present,
when the number of orders is increasing, some departments have worked overtime.
In the opposite direction, DS Vina Company received great support from the
local authorities. “We are supported by the local government in disease
epidemic prevention and control. Binh Duong Tax authority has assisted us to
refund VAT quickly to solve financial difficulties during the epidemic, and Provincial
Industrial Parks' Management Board helped bring our 15 experts from Korea to
work here again”, said a representative of DS Vina Company.
confirm this once again, Wang Sheng Lung, Director of Long Hao Company (Dat
Cuoc Industrial Park), said that the company is still maintaining production,
workers have extra shifts. Due to the company's efforts to support employees,

household appliances, have seen good growth, especially in the US market. The
company has no labor fluctuations. The company also received guidance of all
governmental levels on disease epidemic prevention and production assurance.

The people enjoy the results
It can be seen that, regardless of the stage, the NRD programs and policies are oriented towards the ultimate goal of improving people's material and spiritual life, placing people in the central position is considered as the goal, the driving force of growth.
In the past 5 years (2016-2020), through the National Target Program on NRD, the central and provincial policies on investment in rural development have created a new face for rural areas; the socio-economic infrastructure has been markedly improved. Up to now, Binh Duong has reached 100% of commune roads and roads from the commune center to district roads, 100% of hamlet roads and inter-village roads have been asphalted, which creates favorable conditions for promoting the consumption of agricultural products in large-scale; at the same time, attracting enterprises to invest in rural areas. The system of markets, shooping malls and other areas for sale and purchase goods meet the serving needs for people in rural area.
Road construction in Thanh An commune, Dau Tieng district
Medical examination and treatment services and health care services for people in rural areas have been strengthened; the grassroots medical network has been gradually strengthened and developed; the whole province has 100% of communes meeting health standards. Telecommunication network, mobile phone, Internet covers and extends to hamlets; 100% of communes have qualified cultural houses. In recent years, the economic structure of the province has shifted strongly towards increasing the proportion of industry and services, reducing the proportion of agriculture (the corresponding proportion is industry 63.99%, services 33%, and agriculture 3.01%). With the focus on restructuring the Agriculture sector, people in rural areas have access to many suitable and effective agricultural production models associated with stable jobs.
Economic development means that people's lives are constantly being improved and the access to and enjoyment of social services is better. The current per capita income in rural areas is 58 million VND / person / year (an increase of 169% compared to 2010); 100% houses meet the standards of the Ministry of Construction, there are no temporary houses or dilapidated houses. Binh Duong is also one of the 06 localities in the country with the poverty line higher than the national poverty line (1.7 times higher); The rate of poor households according to the province's criteria is only 1.3%, basically there are no poor households according to the central standards, and there are no households coming back to be poor.
In the annual program, the province's development plans all reserve "decision-making" for people in rural areas such as vocational training for workers, production support, building charity houses, transferring technical faculties, preferential loans for production etc.
Rapid development of human resources, especially high quality human resources, has been identified as a long-term strategy and a decisive factor for the province's future development. The education infrastructure system in rural areas continues to develop, contributing to improving the quality of education in rural areas with over 66% of schools meeting national standards, and 100% of schools at all levels with facilities and equipment for teaching meet national standards; Accordingly, the quality of teaching and learning has been gradually improved, the percentage of students passing the exams at all grades has increased over the years.
Highlighting the role of people in NRD
In the process of NRD, people are a key factor determining the effectiveness of the movement. Before the transformation of the countryside, in addition to inheriting the available conditions from the facilities, people in rural areas have been in harmony with the new trend of the integration period by actively grasping scientific and technical knowledge, positively responding to movements of high technology application in production, start-up, and innovation. The change also comes from the farmer's sense of self-reliance, dynamic ability, will and aspiration to get rich, dare to think and dare to do.
By visiting the efficient economic models, participation in science and technology training sessions, and crop seminars organized by Farmers' Association in Tan Hiep Ward, Tan Uyen town, Mr. Le Van Hon successfully tested the model of abalone mushroom. In addition to technical knowledge, Mr. Hon also boldly applies new technologies such as using automatic systems to reduce labor costs, applying production chain models associated with preservation, processing and consumption of agricultural products; Clean agricultural production associated with environmental protection. As a result, productivity and product quality are improved for a high income and stable economy, after deducting costs, Mr. Hon's family still has a net profit of 1 million dong per day.
The emulation movement "Good farmers in production and business" has created a wide and vibrant atmosphere. In the past 5 years, the province has had more than 132,000 households won the title of good farmer in production and business at all levels. The application of high technology in agricultural production has been applied by many businesses, farmers and households with high economic efficiency. Collective economic models are interested in consolidating and developing. The whole province has 152 cooperatives (including 72 cooperatives located in 46 communes of NRD) with over 55,000 members; there are many new models of cooperatives associated with the effective value operating chain, expanding investment and business; 73 agricultural production establishments and farms were certified with VietGAP standards. Concentrated husbandry with high technology application continued to be developed in 119 farms.

One of the factors contributing to the success of the NRD in Binh Duong is that the localities have mobilized great resources from the people.
