NDO/VNA – There are nearly 1,400 firms or over 80% of those operating in 31 industrial parks in the southern province of Dong Nai have resumed their operations, according to the provincial Industrial Zones Authority.

Due to COVID-19, many businesses had to scale down or suspended production. However, since the end of September, nearly 1,400 firms have resumed operations, drawing more than 334,000 workers back to work or 54 percent of the total number of labourers at the local industrial parks.

The authority said Dong Nai has prioritised vaccinating workers and issued many documents to help enterprises ease difficulties and recover production. It is forecast that in the fourth quarter of this year, firms in Dong Nai will stabilise their production and obtain more export orders.

Le Van Danh, deputy head of the authority, said thanks to the local effective implementation of social security, the majority of migrant workers havefar still stayed in the province.

Most enterprises in the industrial zones have solid financial capacity, therefore, the production recovery will take place quickly and smoothly, he added.
