Tran Van Hien, party committee secretary of Hung Tay commune, Hung Nguyen district recalled the early days of VSIP Nghe An. Since the commencement, leaders of the industrial park directly showed the representative of people owning lands in the clearance area, around VSIP Binh Duong to showcase the social and economic values VSIP brings.
“Many residents became suddenly aware of job opportunities once the new zone is born," he revealed, "and accepted the clearance. The people’s ambitions spurred developers to level the land, invest in infrastructure, and help attract other developers.”
Thanks to the state's one-door policy, administrative procedures for investment, land lease, and business registration, among others, were all done in time, quickly and efficiently. Provincial leaders also made clear commitments and facilitated the company's efforts of persuading investors at VSIP.
VSIP Nghe An has drawn in companies from a variety of sectors like textile and garment, electronics, and footwear. This allows thousands of residents to get a job right in their hometown instead of working far from home as many did in the past.
Tran Thi Minh, a resident of Hung Tay, Hung Nguyen who works at a textile company in the industrial zone said that since VSIP was opened, it brought many job opportunities and helped locals to leave their farming work behind. Especially, far fewer people have to look for jobs in big cities as they can find employment at the zone.
“My average wage is VND6 million ($256) a month," she added, "and if I take a few shifts overtime, it will be even higher. Having a stable job close to home has improved my family’s life. Because of COVID-19, we have been getting fewer working hours, but everything will return to normal when the pandemic is over.”
Ho Van Hiep, vice president of Hung Nguyen district’s People’s Committee stated that VSIP Nghe An has enhanced provincial traffic infrastructure and modernised the urban landscape. In particular, the park has grown the provincial economy and provided social security by giving jobs for up to 1,500 local workers.
Le Ngoc Hoa, vice president of Nghe An People’s Committee said that the province has attracted hundreds of foreign investors every year to discover investment opportunities. Many of them have made Nghe An their final choice for long-term development.
Located at the western entrance of Vinh city, VSIP Nghe An is closely linked to key infrastructure in the city, making transportation easy for residents and businesses. The zone has been investing in infrastructure development, which will facilitate businesses and attract more domestic and foreign investment.
“With the authorities' motto of 'accompanying enterprises', Nghe An province continues improving its investment environment. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the province also promised to support the affected businesses in practical ways such as tax reduction and exemptions, as well as debt rescheduling. Businesses’ success is the province’s success,” he stated.
Choosing the theme of family as its main design orientation, the 2.6ha VSIP Nghe An recreation park has been designed by Malaysian and Singaporean advisors. The new park awaits residents and visitors with colourful vegetation, creating a welcoming green space filled with fresh air. Besides the green area, modern lighting system and a beautiful fountain, the park offers play space for children, an outdoor stage, and fitness equipment to be a pleasant recreational place for residents.
The neighborhood of VSIP Nghe An boasts an 8,000-square-metre building of shops and food courts. The two-story building housing 32 stores can meet residents' need for restaurants, café, shopping, and utilities.
Houses which belong to VSIP Nghe An at the initial development stage will be built in the residential compound. This area will offer many benefits like 24/7 security, clubs, swimming pools, gyms, and community room.
VSIP Nghe An Co., Ltd. built and operates a 6,000 cubic meter wastewater treatment plant as part of the first phase of the project. It is expected that after completion, the plant will be able to process 28,000 cubic metres of wastewater a day, covering the output of the entire 750ha project area. The standard wastewater treatment plant of VSIP Nghe An shows the strong commitments of VSIP to bringing an environmental-friendly service, urban, and industrial park in Nghe An.
