Hanssip to open more doors

N&G Corp’s chairman Nguyen Hoang shares the commitment of N&G Corp and strategic partners and shareholders to turn Hanssip into a compelling centre of Hanoi’s supporting industry.

Would you shine further light on the commitment?

Hanssip is designated to become a competitive supporting industry compound, encompassing urban-services, logistics, trade centre, banking, healthcare facilities and school areas to handle diverse needs from workers, experts and their families.

Hanssip seeks to become Vietnam’s first supporting industry city rising to international standards while still ensuring eco friendliness.

Hanssip will not simply render space. We and the project strategic partners share the commitment to make Hanssip a venue where every investor fells comfort.

That is why we have chosen Japan’s leading design consultant Nikken Sekkei Civil (NSC) to handle the project’s design consultancy work. Hanssip’s detailed planning will contain standards set for an industrial park hosting supporting industries investors.

In the near term, after December 17’s construction launching, top priority will be given to infrastructure and human resources which are often investors’ prime concerns.

We have reached an in-principle approval with strategic partner Japan’s Forval Group in building a quality vocational training school. The school building project is expected to get underway right in 2013’s first quarter.

Will Hanssip target Japanese investors after choosing NSC as its design consultant, Forval as partner to help it call investment and Shimizu as a partner in devising the project?

Japanese investors are our top targets. First, Japanese investors are heading ASEAN countries, including Vietnam. We do not want to miss the chance as Japan is a leader in manufacturing and the supply of products in the supporting industries. Besides, in light of recently inked Vietnam-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (VJEPA) Japan will support Vietnam to spur supporting industry development.

Second, successful Japanese businesses in supporting industries would help lure other Japanese small- and medium-sized enterprise and Vietnamese satellite businesses.

Statistics show that every Japanese business would need 10 satellite units to follow. By that time, Vietnamese manufacturing firms will act as further carriages to create whole production-supply-assembly-consumption value chain right at Hanssip.

Besides, assisting Vietnam with developing an effective supporting industry is put at priority in the Vietnam-Japan Joint Initiative phase IV. We shall be an active player in the programme.

What is more to Japanese investors besides infrastructure and manpower preparations?

Not only Japanese investors, other domestic and foreign investors leasing land at Hanssip will be supported in quick settlement of relevant procedures, investment orientations, tax incentives, manpower training and especially preferential lending for production and business needs.

Right when conceiving the project, we aim to secure investors’ satisfaction. Besides, Japanese investors placing workshops in Hanssip would be given incentives for house purchases in Hanssip which is expected to lure Japanese investors.
