Investment project to build the factory

Investment project to build the factory in Vietnam. Under Vietnam Law on Investment, foreign investor firstly make an investment in Vietnam must prepare a project submitted to relevant competent authority.
A project is defined as a collection of proposals for the expenditure of medium and long-term capital in order to carry out an investment activity in a specific geographical area and for a specific duration. In such project, the foreign investor is required to detail issues relating to target markets, land use demands, project implementation schedule and environmental solution, so on.
It is important that the investment project must be compliant with master planning for land use, construction and utilization of natural resources and other resources that prepared by relevant competent authorities. Otherwise, the investment project shall be rejected. For avoiding non-compliance with above said master plan of competent authority, it is required for Foreign Investor to obtain an in-principle approval or agreement on land use right from competent authority or existed enterprises in Vietnam.
For the above purpose, foreign investor may contact with provincial competent authority to lease land use right (herein after referred to as “LUR”). Otherwise, foreign investor may work with infrastructure development companies for leasing land lot in Industrial and Processing Zones or work with other local companies for leasing warehouses or existing factory, etc.
As to our practical experience, generally foreign investors prefer locating their companies in Industrial and Processing Zones because of its convenience in utilization of labor and other resources as well as developed infrastructure.
When the factory is setup in Vietnam, the new company is entitled to import raw material and/or semi products from other countries for producing goods in Vietnam. Also, the company can distribute such products in Vietnam or export them to Asian Countries.
