Over 5,800 firms or 44% of the total number of registered enterprises in the southern province of Long An resumed operations as of October 13.


Of them, 1,871 were in manufacturing sector with more than 151,700 workers and 4,000 in services and key necessities with some 57,800 labourers.

The provincial steering board of COVID-19 prevention and control said the province strives to have all companies return to work by late November, towards achieving the new normal by early 2022.

Under Plan No.3222/KH-UBND on the recovery of business and trade activities issued by the provincial People’s Committee, all enterprises are allowed to resume operations when they meet requirements for pandemic prevention and control and take responsibility for the effort to local authorities.

Local authorities and medical stations will assist firms in gradually rebooting their activities, contributing to the dual goals of fighting the pandemic and restoring economic development.
