According to Mr. Van, the biggest advantage comes from its geo-strategic position in terms of politics and economy when it is the only locality in the country with both land and sea borders with China, including 3 border gates. This is the foundation to promote the development of cross-border trade, and the exchange of goods and services with the world's most populous country.

Long, has outstanding potential in marine economic development and a long seaport system is gradually forming.

The third advantage is that the province's socio-economic infrastructure system is gradually being invested in a synchronous and modern manner, with a full range of transport modes (including highways, airways, waterways, etc.). - international maritime). In particular, Quang Ninh has a highway of more than 200 km running throughout the province (accounting for 1/10 of the national highway length), making the travel time from Hanoi to Ha Long only 1.5 hours to Mong Cai city (the international border gate of Quang Ninh province) is only 3 hours away.

The fourth advantage in attracting investment in Quang Ninh is the "soft" infrastructure system. Investment - business environment ranked first in Vietnam for 5 consecutive years; establish a working group to support all investment, construction, production, and business procedures during the project's operation.

The fifth advantage lies in the largely industrial area. Quang Ninh currently has 2 coastal economic zones, 3 border gate economic zones, and 16 industrial parks. Quang Ninh's economic zones and industrial parks are connected to each other by a system of highways... Currently, there are 548.61 hectares of industrial land invested with infrastructure that can be ready for investors to lease, by 2025 there will be 3,658 ha and by 2030 there will be 5,904 ha. Many other advantages in terms of labor resources, electricity, and water infrastructure are also introduced to investors.
