Infrastructure attracts investment to north Vietnam
Vietnam Investment Review

The newly established five modals (rail/road/air/river/sea) infrastructure network has brought a great deal of investment to the Red River Delta, especially Hai Phong. Hans Kerstens, international business development manager at Deep C Industrial Zones, said in the last five years the north has become the most popular investment destination for foreign companies. Almost US$60 billion has been invested there since 2011, outperforming the south by nearly $9 billion. Availability of prime industrial land adjacent to the new infrastructure developments in combination with reliable power, water, wastewater treatment the best tax package available in Viet Nam are some of the reasons why many more investors have decided to come here. The presence of a second airport (besides Noi Bai Airport in Hà Nội) capable of handling cargo via international routes is an imperative to comfort investors in the mobile phone and electronics business, he said.
A major game changer in the north has been the construction of the new Hai Phong International Gateway Port (also known as Lach Huyen Port). The new Lach Huyen Port, which will become operational next year, will allow vessels with a draft of 14m or 100,000DWT to berth in Hai Phong, eliminating the need to tranship from places like Singapore or Hong Kong and reducing the time to markets.
