Vinh Phuc province currently has eight industrial parks in operation, creating more than 92,000 jobs. To provide accommodations for employees, in recent years, Vinh Phuc province has requested functional departments and industries to speed up planning and spend nearly 158 hectares for social housing. The province prioritized housing investment for workers in some areas in Binh Xuyen and Lap Thach districts.

With preferential mechanisms and policies in attracting investment, many businesses have come to learn and implement many social housing development projects in the province such as: The residential project for low income earners in Khai Quang ward invested by Bao Quan Investment and Construction Joint Stock Company; and the accommodation project for workers in Ba Hien commune invested by Vinh Yen Investment and Development Joint Stock Company.

Recently, the social housing project in Rung Cuong hamlet, Thien Ke commune, Binh Xuyen district, invested by Kehin Joint Stock Company has been approved by Vinh Phuc Provincial People's Committee for investment policy. The project has a total investment of more than VND1,658 billion, covering nearly 11 hectares. The investor will build two eleven-story apartment buildings (about 60m2/unit), three nine-story apartment buildings (about 70m2/unit), with a total of 993 apartments. In addition, the investor will also build 324 semi-detached houses; 99 shophouses; a three-story kindergarten for 500 children with an area of ​​nearly 6,000 m2; a three-story primary school with an area of ​​more than 2,000 m2; a three-story medical facility; a two-story cultural house for sports, cultural events with an area of ​​about 790 m2.

The project will contribute to creating housing supply to meet urgent needs of workers in the key industrial development area of ​​Vinh Phuc province and in line with orientation in planning.

The project is expected to be completed in 2024. With a modern investment in the technical infrastructure system and architecture, once completed, the project will address housing needs for more than 3,800 workers and low-income earners working in industrial parks in Vinh Phuc, contributing to promoting investment attraction and socio-economic development of the province.
