According to the provincial Department of Planning and Investment, last year, the province attracted 32 FDI projects with a total registered capital of more than 363 million USD; approved investment adjustments to 61 FDI projects with an additional capital of more than 537 million USD. The good sign is that although total FDI capital was lower than that of the previous year, Bac Giang still ranked 8th in the country in terms of total investment capital.

Increasing attractiveness

According to experts, Bac Giang is considered to be a locality with an emerging economy. To welcome the new "wave" of investment, the provincial People's Committee has been focusing on improving the business and investment environment comprehensively; prioritizing large-scale, hi-tech and environmentally friendly projects that use less land and labor; developing manufacturing industry, electronics, automation, automobile, and supporting industries. With that orientation, the province has implemented many synchronous solutions and policies such as rolling out the "red carpet" to welcome investors, promoting administrative reform, and improving the business environment in order to maximize support for businesses. The provincial leaders have held regular meetings and dialogues to listen to opinions of businesses; directed departments, agencies, districts and city to actively grasp businesses’ production and business activities as well as review and cut administrative procedures.

The province established the Steering Committee for Investment Support and Enterprise Development led by the Chairman of the provincial People's Committee to promptly solve difficulties and problems facing investors. In 2020, the Chairman of the provincial People's Committee established a special working group to receive and process information and feedback from enterprises about the bad conducts of officials, civil servants and public employees. Nguyen Cuong, Deputy Director of the provincial Department of Planning and Investment, said that in order to create favorable conditions for investors, especially in administrative procedures and access to land, thus reducing time and costs, during the year, the provincial leaders drastically directed the implementation of solutions to improve the provincial Competitiveness Index (PCI) and the District and Department Competitiveness Index (DDCI). This work continues to be carried out by the province in 2021.

In particular, defining convenient transport infrastructure and available "clean" premises as prerequisites to attract investors, the province is focusing on mobilizing and allocating large capital sources to develop transport infrastructure and infrastructure at industrial zones and clusters; supporting ground clearance for key projects in industrial zones and clusters. Currently, the province has six industrial zones, five of which have become operational. In addition, it was allowed by the Prime Minister to conduct procedures for the establishment of two other industrial zones, Yen Lu and Bac Lung, on a total area of 1,395 hectares.
