Covering 75 hectares, the project will include high-tech factories, warehouse, customs bonded warehouse, showrooms and offices.
Charles R Kaye, Director General of Warburg Pincus, said Binh Duong has achieved impressive results in economic development, especially successfully implementing the dual goal of COVID-19 prevention and control as well as resuming its economy.
He expressed his wish that the province will create favourable conditions for the firm so that the project will be carried out soon, saying that it is a major strategic project which he believes will elevate the position of the province in particular and Vietnam in general in the field of e-commerce.
