The newly emerging economic zone sits in the heart of one of the key growth areas of Vietnam, Quang Nai province. The development of the Dung Quat refinery has boosted economic development in what was a previously poor area of the country. Refineries provide a host of petrochemicals that help to spur the chemical and textile sectors.
The recent progress of the Hoa Phat Dung Quat Integrated Iron and Steel Complex will be another key anchor industry in the province which again will be a strong magnet for manufacturers who use iron and steel as raw materials for their products.
Dung Quat Economic Zone also has good connections to Dung Quat port and access to major highways connecting north and south Vietnam. An abundant labour supply is also a benefit for investors looking to set up a factory in this area.
