Favorable geographical location
Bac Ninh is located in the key economic triangle Hanoi – Hai Phong – Quang Ninh, adjacent to major economic centers of the North. It takes only 40 minutes to travel from Bac Ninh to Hanoi, 30 minutes to Noi Bai airport, and about 2 hours to Hai Phong port. Its favorable geographical location is very helpful in economic exchange and goods rotation; thus extremely suitable for large factory construction projects in Bac Ninh.

Flat terrain, stable geology
Many investors choose factory construction in Bac Ninh because of the flat terrain and stable geology here. The area of hills and mountains in Bac Ninh accounts for a very small proportion (0.53%) compared to the total natural area of the province. With relatively flat terrain, investors do not need to spend a lot of time and money on surveying, leveling, etc. before building the factory.
Soil geology is equally important. Compared with other factory projects that DELCO has built in industrial parks of Bac Giang, Hung Yen, Ha Nam, Vinh Phuc, Binh Duong, etc. Bac Ninh is one of the places where the ground has good bearing strength. The average depth of the pile foundation to reach a good soil layer is only from 16 to 22m underneath, so it does not cost much to press pile, build the factory foundation or improve and reinforce the foundation.
Not only has a favorable geographical location, but Bac Ninh also has a development network of transportation and various types of traffic such as roads, railways, and waterways, which is convenient for inter-regional transport and export of goods to markets such as China, the USA, Europe, etc.
For road traffic, there are National Highway 1A, Highway 18, and National Highway 38, connecting Bac Ninh with regional provinces such as Hanoi, Lang Son, Ha Long, Hai Phong, Hai Duong, etc. helping the logistics process, transporting goods in the region take place quickly and easily.
Bac Ninh traffic is also convenient for the import and export process to large export markets of Vietnam such as China, the USA, Europe, etc. Goods are shipped to China through the railway across Vietnam connecting Bac Ninh with the Lang Son border gate. Bac Ninh center is only 2 hours from Hai Phong seaport; as a result, maritime transport from Bac Ninh to the US and Europe is extremely convenient. Not to mention, Bac Ninh is located very close to Noi Bai airport – one of the two greatest and biggest locations for goods transporting in the country.
In addition, the river network connects to the northern river and seaport system, giving Bac Ninh an open terrain, ready for waterway exchanges – helping investors to transport large quantities of goods at a lower cost compared to aviation shipping.
FDI attraction policies
Bac Ninh leads in industrial production and is the leading locality in FDI attraction in the first 2 months of 2022. Bac Ninh has implemented many policies to attract investment in the direction of “2 less, 3 high, 5 ready”.
2 less are less use of labor and less use of land. Having the smallest natural land area among Vietnam localities, Bac Ninh prioritizes high-tech projects and projects that save labor and land.
3 high are high investment rate, high economic efficiency, and high technology. Bac Ninh focuses on project quality instead of quantity. The province encourages projects with high investment capital, bringing economic efficiency and containing a lot of technological intelligence. The purpose of this policy is to limit environmental pollution and contribute to economic growth.
5 ready are ready ground, human resources, reform, support, and anti-epidemic. Bac Ninh promotes site clearance for industrial zones and clusters, creating ground for investors; constantly improves the quality of human resources; reforms administrative procedures, and investment incentive policies and helps investors overcome the consequences of COVID-19. In the context of businesses being heavily affected by COVID-19, being willing to accompany investors to remove difficulties makes Bac Ninh likable enough to attract FDI.
Human resource development policies
On November 30, 2017, Bac Ninh issued Decision No. 680/QD-UBND approving the adjustment of the human resource development planning of Bac Ninh province from now to 2020, with orientation to 2030. The general objective of this policy is to develop human resources in Bac Ninh province in sufficient numbers, with high professional qualifications, proficiency in skills, and professional, dynamic, and creative manners. Although Bac Ninh has no advantage in terms of population compared to Hai Phong, Hai Duong, etc., it has high-quality human resources that can meet the human resource demands of investors.
