Potentials and Opportunities in Binh Dinh Province

Binh Dinh Overview

Located in the south-central coast and central key economic region of the country, Binh Dinh province borders Quang Ngai province to the north, Phu Yen province to the south, Gia Lai province to the west, and the East Sea to the east with a coastline of 134 kilometers. Covering some 6,070 square kilometers, the province has a population of more than 1.48 million and is home to 27 ethnic groups with Kinh (Viet) being the most populous, followed by indigenous ethnic groups Cham, Bana, and H’re. It has Quy Nhon city as its capital, An Nhon and Hoai Nhon towns, and eight districts, namely An Lao, Hoai An, Phu My, Vinh Thanh, Tay Son, Phu Cat, Tuy Phuoc, and Van Canh.   

Binh Dinh province has changed dramatically in recent years thanks to its investment in infrastructure development. After being upgraded, a 7.4km section of National Highway 1D running from Long Van bridge to Quy Nhon bus station, an 18km section of National Highway 19 linking Quy Nhon port with the intersection of National Highway 1A, and a 14.3 km western route connecting Quy Nhon city and Van Canh district have been opened to traffic. In addition, the completion of a 20 km section of National Highway 19B connecting Phu Cat Airport and Nhon Hoi Economic Zone (EZ) has shortened the traveling time from the airport to the EZ and is expected to welcome the influx of foreign direct investment (FDI) in the province.

At present, Quy Nhon port is the most convenient international gateway between the Central Highlands and the neighboring countries of Cambodia and Laos. The province is home to six industrial parks, including Nhon Hoi EZ on the largest land plot of over 14,000 hectares.

The event’s primary objective is to support Vietnam in achieving its COP26 commitments and the socio-economic development goals specified in its National Green Growth Strategy for 2021-2030.

GEFE 2022 will bring together experts across sustainable business and governance for three days of conferences, exhibitions, and high-level B2B and B2G dialogue sessions, along with EuroCham Vietnam’s Green Business Awards and annual Gala Dinner. The whole slate of events will act as a platform to enhance cooperation between European and Vietnamese business communities and to promote a sustainable green Vietnamese economy through expertise sharing and technology transfer initiatives.

The first day of GEFE 2022 will include a plenary conference, which will function as a forum for high-level dialogue between European and Vietnamese government representatives and business stakeholders to coordinate and hold discussions on green policy frameworks, national energy plans, and climate risks more generally.

Each of GEFE 2022’s three days will entail panel discussions and seminars on a broad theme, including energy and green financing on day one, waste and sustainability on day two, followed by innovation and entrepreneurship on the third and final day. Each day will be further divided into subtopics, covering more than 20 green sector subjects in total.
