Security, order and fire prevention in industrial parks are always guaranteed. The Vinh Phuc Industrial Zones Management Board controlled worker transportation in local industrial zones and urged infrastructure investors and operators to ensure fire safety in industrial parks.
In the coming time, post-licensed investment project management in industrial zones will continue to be focused on by the Board, which will propose the Provincial People's Committee to apply solutions to deal with difficulties and obstacles faced by tenants in business.
At the same time, the Board will continue to manage labor and environment, regularly exchange information and cooperation with the Provincial Public Administration Center to ensure lawful implementation of administrative procedures.
