VND59 billion of extra Infrastructural investment for Giao Long IP and An Hiep IZ

In 2007, Ben Tre province will allocate an extra amount of VND59
billion for infrastructural investment in the

Industrial Park
and An Hiep Industrial Zone, both
located in Chau Thanh District, according to Mr Tran Van Hoang, Vice Chief of
the Ben Tre Industrial Parks Authority (Ben Tre IPA).

Mr Hoang said, the money will be apportioned into two sums, one
is VND40 billion for the Giao Long IP and the other is VND19 billion for the An
Hiep IZ, both used for investment in building waste water treatment systems and
internal roads. At the moment, the space leveling work in the Giao Long IP has
basically been finished, while that work in the An Hiep IZ has been done on 16.5
ha of the total 65 ha of space area.

Totally, 15 investors, including 4 foreign and 11 domestic
investors, have been granted with investment licences (of which 12 are in the
Giao Long IP). The total investment capital so far is estimated at USD28 million
and VND294 billion. Among the investors, 4 are underway to construct their
production facilities, and one of them has actually gone into operation.
