In light of Quang Binh’s master plan for the 2021-2030 period, with a vision to 2050, that was approved by the prime minister in Decision No.377/QD-TTg, industry is deemed a key sector and the driving force to realise the province's economic restructuring through industrialisation and modernisation.
Accordingly, Quang Binh continues to focus on key industries with competitive advantages, such as electricity and renewable energy, agriculture, forestry and fishery products, food, agricultural product processing for export, building materials, textiles, and supporting industries associated with raising the level of tech innovation.

Quang Binh’s industrial sector will feature three regions. The northern region will take Hon La Economic Zone (EZ) as the nucleus with associated areas such as Hon La Seaport Industrial Zone (IZ), Hon La II IZ, Western Gateway IZ, Quang Trach IZ, and several others.
This area serves as the driving force for the development of Quang Binh province over the period from 2021-2030 with a number of key projects such as the Quang Trach I-II thermal power plant. The area will give priority to high-tech and environmentally friendly projects.

The central region encompasses Dong Hoi city and the surrounding area including Bo Trach and Quang Ninh districts, with associated IZs such as Bo Trach, Northwest Dong Hoi, North Dong Hoi, and Northwest Quan Hau. This area gives priority to clean, environment-friendly industries, labour-intensive sectors, advanced technology, and apparel and footwear production.
The southern region encompasses the Cam Lien and Bang IZs in the two districts of Le Thuy and Quang Ninh, south of the Nhat Le River and Quan Hau Bridge.
This region gives priority to agricultural cultivation, industrial crops, agro-forestry-fishery processing industries, construction material production, stone mining, and the development of renewable energy along the coast.
In addition, Quang Binh aims to develop key construction material production hubs in Tuyen Hoa and Quang Ninh districts.
According to Quang Bình People's Committee, the province aims to reach $2.1 billion (at 2010 constant prices) in industrial production value by 2030, growing by an average 14-14.5 per cent annually. The industrial production index for the 2021-2030 period is set to average 13 per cent on-year.
Compared to many other localities across the country, Quang Binh has the potential to attract investment and develop its industrial sector as it benefits from abundant land, available raw materials, and good infrastructure. The province has increasingly focused on synchronous investment.

Doan Ngoc Lam, Standing Deputy Chairman of Quang Binh People's Committee, said that to enhance land use efficiency in its IZs, Quang Binh will develop a promotion plan to draw investment into industries and projects in accordance with the IZ planning scheme.
“Besides building criteria to select appropriate investment attraction priorities, the province will carry out monitoring, evaluation, and the termination of projects that are delayed or not deployed to avoid wasting land. Priority will be given to partners such as Japan and South Korea, and key industries such as mechanical engineering, electronics, and other high-tech fields to boost the lease rate,” Lam noted.
