Mr. Hoang pointed out that the province is bracing for more development, having authorised the allotment of more than 15 industrial parks and zones, most of which already concluded. Binh Phuoc was described as a province open for business, whereby logistics and warehousing infrastructure has been a concern and in strong development in the preparation for more investment in the future. Here, the opportunities that may arise from the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement entering into force were also underlined.

This was also the context in which Mr. James described EuroCham’s approach, to be also carried out in local action driven by the recently created Southeastern Vietnam Chapter – which introduction and related explanation was welcomed by the Binh Phuoc government representatives present.
