According to Ha Van Cung, head of management board of the Tay Ninh Economic Zone, the production resumption attracted 56,000 workers, or over 40% of the province’s total, returning to work.

To ensure COVID-19 prevention and control, the provincial authorities continue guiding firms to conduct the in-place production method, regular testing, and vaccinations workers.

To date, nearly 30,000 labourers at the local industrial parks and economic zone have been vaccinated against COVID-19.

Tay Ninh currently houses six industrial parks in the planning of Vietnam's industrial parks approved by the Prime Minister, spanning a total natural land area of 3,969 ha. Five of them, covering 3,385 ha in total, have been licensed to operate, with their occupation rate reaching 61.14%. Before the fourth wave of COVID-19 hit Vietnam in late April, these parks had 268 enterprises operating with more than 133,000 employees.
