Hai Phong, a port city in the northern coastal region, an industrial center, a seaport, a center of economy, culture, health, education, science, commerce and technology, has always been acknowledged as an appealing destination for investors, especially in attracting FDI in the North.
Strategic transport hub with developed infrastructure

Proactively stimulating foreign capital flows

In April, Hai Phong continuously launched welcoming events for delegations from Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the European Union. This is a positive sign, affirming that Hai Phong is a reliable destination for foreign investors.
At the Connecting Hai Phong – Hong Kong Program on April 14th, Ha Kim Ngoc – Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs assessed Hai Phong as one of most advantageous localities in cooperation with Hong Kong (China), due to its proximity in geographical location, easy seaport connections, available facilities for setting up production sites, developing logistics and service industries.

In light of these available strengths and potentials, along with the city’s striving to establish 15 new industrial zones, Hai Phong shows off distinctive advantages to attract foreign capital flows.
