Under the planning on the development of industrial zones and clusters approved by the Prime Minister, Vinh Phuc will have 31 industrial clusters by 2030.
In order to encourage and attract investors, to develop industrial clusters, in 2010, the provincial People's Council issued Resolution No. 12 on supporting infrastructure investment in the province in the period 2010-2015. However, after five years of implementation, support mechanisms were not enough to encourage and attract industrial infrastructure investors. In addition, the rental price is high while production and business enterprises are mainly SMEs, financial capacity is limited. Besides, in some provinces such as Thai Nguyen, Hai Duong, Bac Ninh, Binh Thuan, Ha Nam, Hung Yen, Ha Tinh ... along with supportive investment preparation costs and environmental items, they also support infrastructure investment, with a minimum of 30%.
According to the provincial People's Committee, up to now, 16 industrial clusters have been established in the province, but only seven have been put into operation, attracting 319/457 businesses, creating jobs for thousands of workers. In particular, the infrastructure investment in industrial clusterd has partially solved the demand for production space for industrial and handicraft establishments in rural areas.
In order to overcome the inadequacies, increasing the rate of filling in these 16 industrial clusters and attracting enterprises to invest in infrastructure building of the remaining industrial clusters, meeting the space demand on agricultural production, in the 10th session, the provincial People's Council approved the draft resolution on approving the program on supporting investment and development of enterprises in the province in the period of 2019-2021.
Accordingly, the provincial budget will spend about 170 billion VND to support 100% expenses on preparing and appraising reports on environmental impact assessment, clearance of infrastructure projects; support VND 700 million / ha for compensation and ground clearance; 30% of investment for construction of power system for industrial clusters. For Song Lo, Lap Thach districts and mountainous communes of Tam Dao and Binh Xuyen districts, the support will be not more than VND 7 billion / cluster with an area of less than 15 hectares; VND 10 billion /cluster with an area of 15-25 hectares; VND 15 billion / cluster with over 25 hectares. For the remaining localities, the support will be not more than 5 billion / cluster under 15ha; not exceeding VND 7 billion / cluster of 15-25 hectares and VND 10 billion / cluster of more than 25 hectares.
Particularly, production and business establishments will be supported 10% of the rent for SMEs and cooperatives.
In implementing this Resolution, the provincial People's Committee will direct the localities to review and promote the propaganda and create favorable conditions for the settlement of administrative procedures in order to attract investors to develop infrastructure and increase the occupancy rate of industrial clusters.
