The Mekong Delta is attracting more businesses with its improved transport infrastructure. The government has invested heavily in highways and other modes of transportation. This makes it easier for businesses to find land and relocate their production plants to the Mekong Delta.
To attract more investors, some localities have prepared land and industrial park plans. Hau Giang province is the leader of the region and the country in terms of economic growth, with a GRDP rate of over 14%. By 2030, it plans to build seven new industrial parks.
According to research data, the Mekong Delta is the fastest-urbanizing region in Vietnam. Its economic growth rate surpasses the national average by 1.3 to 1.5 times. The Mekong Delta has many advantages for industrial development, renewable energy, and logistics, thanks to its improved infrastructure and abundant natural resources. These factors make it attractive for future investment and industrial park expansion.
The Mekong Delta is Vietnam’s main producer of grains and fruits, making up nearly 32% of the country’s agricultural GDP. It also supplies more than 95% of the rice exports and 60% of the seafood production. The improved transport infrastructure will reduce travel time, link the region and enhance the local products’ competitiveness.
