Firstly, Binh Thuan has many beautiful beaches, and especially in recent times, the infrastructure has started to be completed, particularly with the expressway connecting Ho Chi Minh City and the Southeast region as well as being part of the North-South expressway system, along with the bustling development of Long Thanh airport. Therefore, Binh Thuan has significant advantages to attract tourists and investors to explore and invest in real estate as well as related industries. Additionally, the province’s urban planning announcement will provide clearer direction for investors, enabling them to identify values and investment needs more precisely. They will be more confident to invest when there are clear policies, especially considering the legal issues that real estate enterprises are concerned about.

Becamex IDC, a company experienced in urban industrial development, has been approved by the Prime Minister to develop the 468-hectare Son My 2 Industrial Park in Binh Thuan. This marks the beginning of strong investment and development efforts by Becamex in Binh Thuan, including the urban industrial and service area of Ham Tan La Gi.

AES, a major US investor in the energy sector in Vietnam, views the Son My LNG terminal project as crucial in contributing to Vietnam’s future energy needs. The gas volume from the plant will have the capacity to supply energy to 15 million households. The construction of the plant will create over 1,500 jobs and improve the quality of life for local residents. Mr. Uddo also highlighted that the project in Binh Thuan provides opportunities for technology transfer, knowledge sharing, and long-term advancements in the energy sector.

Today, Binh Thuan is like what the Provincial Party Secretary Duong Van An once compared to: “In the past, Binh Thuan was like a charming girl but in a remote, distant, and harsh region, so few paid attention. Nowadays, that girl has grown more beautifully, with convenient living and transportation, and more luxurious homes. Every young man wants to visit her.”
