The parks are quickly building technical infrastructure: since the start of this year businesses have invested VND146 billion (US$6.3 million) in infrastructure, 3.8 per cent more than in the same period last year.

Infrastructure work is nearing completion at the upcoming Viet Nam - Singapore Industrial Park III, which will open to investors in the near future.

The 1,000-hectare park, which has seen over VND6.4 trillion invested in its infrastructure, is expected to be a green industrial park, and will only house factories that are modern and environment-friendly.

Nguyen Thanh Truc, deputy chairman of the province People's Committee, said besides supporting industries Binh Duong focuses on industries that are hi-tech, environment-friendly and have high value-addition.

Binh Duong is among the top three destinations for FDI, accounting for 9.2 per cent of the country's total.

Japan is the top investor out of the 65 countries and territories that are in the province.

Hideyuki Okada, chairman of the Japanese Business Association in HCM City, said Binh Duong was one of the best places in Viet Nam for Japanese businesses.

The province attracted more than US$1.2 billion worth of FDI in the first nine months of this year, with nearly 70 per cent invested in industrial parks.
