In 2019, they created revenue of USD31.5 billion and VND8.062 trillion, including exports of more than USD27 billion, an increase of more than 5% compared to 2018, contributing more than VND7.2 trillion to the budget (up 15% over the previous year), equal to nearly 50% of total budget collection in the province

Thai Nguyen industrial zones have created jobs for 103,600 labourers, with average income reaching VND6.5 million or more per person per month.

In 2020, the provincial Industrial Zones Authority will put 250-hectare Song Cong II Industrial Zone, the fifth industrial zone, into operation. So far, it has attracted 8 projects with an investment of more than USD644 million and VND250 billion.
