Foreign direct investment (FDI) enterprises have played an increasingly important role in boosting socio-economic development in the northern province of Vinh Phuc, especially in generating jobs for workers.
In 2017, the province had 139 FDI businesses which employed 70,551 labourers with an average income of 4.9 million VND (211 USD) per person per month.
By the end of last year, there were 305 valid FDI projects in the province, which generate jobs for 82,000 workers, with an average income of 7 million VND per person per month.
To attract FDI firms, Vinh Phuc has synchronously implemented measures such as speeding up ground clearance, offering incentives on land rent, and investing in infrastructure at industrial zones.
It has paid attention to investment promotion, and employment affairs, with the focus placed on offering vocational training for locals.
The province has also stepped up the dissemination of information to raise awareness of environmental protection among enterprises and investors, and intensified inspections to detect and handle law violations related to environmental protection./.
