VGP - Permanent Vice Chairman of the Binh Dương provincial People’s Committee Mai Hung Dung on March 4 received a delegation led by head of the Cambodian Ministry of Interior’s Department of Administration Buon Heng.

At the reception, Mr. Buon Heng said the delegation wants to learn from Binh Duong’s experience in launching the administrative centre model. 

In turn, permanent Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Mai Hung Dung said now, the province is home to 29 industrial zones with a total area of over 12,700 ha and occupancy of over 80%. 

Binh Duong posted an 8.6% growth in gross regional domestic product last year. Its export revenue surpassed US$ 25.2 billion, or 11% of the country’s total. 

According to a master plan for 2020 as approved by the Prime Minister, Binh Duong will have 34 industrial zones covering more than 14,700 ha. 

Dung said a highlight of local administrative reform during the 2011-2020 period was the inauguration of the public administrative centre, reflecting the province’s determination to develop transparent and efficient administrative services. 

The locality has so far attracted over 3,500 foreign-invested projects, ranking third behind Ha Noi and Ho Chi Minh City in terms of foreign direct investment attraction. In 2018 alone, it lured US$2.2 billion in 224 new projects, 132 with adjusted capital, and 162 in stake purchase.
