Riding on the success of VSIP JV in Southern Vietnam, VSIP embarked on its expansion to Northern Vietnam by developing VSIP JSC (or VSIP North) primarily consisting of VSIP Bac Ninh, VSIP Hai Phong and VSIP Hai Duong. Given the current full occupancy at VSIP Bac Ninh, VSIP JSC intends to expand its’ presence by investing and developing another industrial estate in the province this year, a 273-hectare industrial development called VSIP Bac Ninh 2. The proposed site is located at a 15-minute drive to Hanoi’s Noi Bai International Airport and close to the automotive and electronics hub of the North. VSIP Bac Ninh 2 will offer investors an added option when investing in Northern Vietnam in the near future.
