FDI from Asia Will Flow into Hai Phong

Hai Phong has made a splash in attracting foreign direct investment (FDI) and there are indications that foreign investors will continue to set up company in Vietnam in general and particularly this port city in the near future.
Kết quả hình ảnh cho FDI là gì
In fact, there are few places in the Northern of Vietnam having complete infrastructure system with five modes (railway, road, air, river, sea) such as Hai Phong.
The new Hanoi – Hai Phong highway is one of the most modern in Vietnam. In 2016, Cat Bi International Airport has been expanded to create a large capacity air transportation system in the North (after Noi Bai International Airport, Hanoi), capable of transporting goods on all international routes. The new Lach Huyen port will be operated next year, allowing ships with draft of 14 meters or tonnage of 100,000 DWT to berth in Hai Phong, minimizing the transit time of ports such as Singapore or Hong Kong. These advantages of Hai Phong bring direct benefits to investors by shortening the time to bring products to market. Therefore, many foreign investors have seized the opportunity to invest and deploy the projects in Hai Phong.
By 2016, Hai Phong has licensed 490 FDI projects, with total registered capital of nearly 14 billion USD. Particularly in 2016, with 2.9 billion USD of FDI capital, Hai Phong has risen to the second position in FDI attraction, after Ho Chi Minh City.
Hai Phong still has a large land fund, in the “gold” positions. For example, Dinh Vu – Cat Hai Economic Zone has a total area of 22,540 ha and can be expanded to 600 ha; 19 industrial parks with an area of 9,112 ha and 33 industrial clusters with area of 2,284 ha.
According to representatives of the Deep C Industrial Complex, one of the reasons why investors chose to deploy the project is that industrial parks are located in strategic locations near the newly invested infrastructure, combined with a reliable utility system (including electricity, water, sewage) and the best incentive policy. This is why many investors have implemented large capital projects in Deep C’s industrial parks such as Bridgestone (Japan), Flat Glass (Hong Kong), Knauf (Germany)…
Apart from the advantages of location, infrastructure and good human resources, Hai Phong now has many models of quality industrial parks. That is the basis to believe that in the coming time, industrial zones in Hai Phong will welcome large capital flows from Asia.

However, it is not easy to choose partners to help maximize the value for business, especially in this difficult time. That is the reason why we should conduct the due diligence research in Vietnam before making any decision.
According to experts, there are enterprises that growing very fast because they choose the right partners involving in the value chain, but also there are well-known enterprises in the market that have to face with a lot of difficulties due to choosing wrong partners. Therefore, how to choose the right business partners, financial partners and strategic shareholders to help enterprises overcome difficulties, develop faster and more sustainable are always issues that concerned by many business leaders.
In challenging conditions as at present, the economic situation in Vietnam and the world places great influence on the partner selection of companies. Currently, the debt crisis in some European countries caused the demand for import from these countries dropped sharply. Therefore, Vietnam enterprises must seek new markets. In this situation, companies should restructure their operations, choosing to produce products that are suitable with the new markets.
There are two key partners that companies need to keep in mind, they are financial partner and business partner. Depending on the objectives of the companies that they will choose the right partner. Normally, with the stable economic condition, companies often choose strategic partner.
However, in difficult situation such as the present, the choice of partners is made for short term so that the company could be able to change and adapt according to the general environmental condition. Many experts believe that, in difficult times, good cooperation will help enterprises to stand firm and “over storm” successfully.
Hence, conducting the due diligence research helps us to have a clearer vision of partners before deciding to cooperate with them in business, especially partners in foreign countries where you still feel strange. Whether choosing business partner or financial partner, companies should be cautious. They should learn from the Japanese companies. Before deciding to cooperate with a partner, Japanese companies often study the partners very thoroughly. Therefore, the cooperation project of Japanese companies often succeeds up to 85%.
