Located in Ben Cat Town, one of three urban and industrial hubs of Binh Duong province, and furnished with fully invested infrastructure, Rach Bap Industrial Park has become an attractive destination for domestic and foreign investors. The efforts and positive development of the industrial park have importantly contributed to building local business environment and socioeconomic development.
Rach Bap Industrial Park, established in 2008 and invested by An Dien Industry Joint Stock Company, covers an area of 278.6 ha in the first phase. Launched in a time of world financial crisis and economic recession, it was very hard to draw investment capital into industrial parks.
Mr. Tran Quoc Thai, General Director of An Dien Industry Joint Stock Company, said, “In 2008 - 2012, a very few customers rented land, usually very small in area. Besides, Rach Bap Industrial Park drew fierce competition from neighboring IPs which had more favorable factors in terms of geography, traffic, and industries.”
The world economy started to improve, by seizing good opportunities, An Dien Industry Joint Stock Company strengthened marketing and promotion and introduced more preferential policies. Besides, with positive support from local authorities, from Vietnam Rubber Industry Group and Dau Tieng Rubber Company, land occupancy in the industrial park started to improve.
With incentive policies, well-invested infrastructure, near input supply sources, abundant labor resources and no natural disasters such as floods, storms and earthquakes, many investors have come to Rach Bap Industrial Park, including big investors. Especially, in five years from 2015 to date, land renting in the industrial park has been very exciting.
Up to now, the first phase of the project has been filled 100%, housing 77 investment projects, including 22 domestic projects and 55 foreign projects, with a total registered investment of VND5,421 billion. Tenants are employing over 8,000 workers.
