AMATA City Ha Long, in its presentation, highlighted the park's development and achievements, particularly in 2023, where it garnered significant attention from investors due to various advantages supported by the local authority. Japanese investors are crucial in our Southern industrial park AMATA City Bien Hoa, which was established in 1994, constituting 40% of FDI investors, and they are also a primary target for FDI attraction in AMATA City Ha Long.
Currently, AMATA in Quang Ninh has subleased nearly 12 hectares for upcoming projects in electronics and mechanicals by Japanese investors.
