Of this, nine new projects were licensed with registered capital of USD85.72 million and nine ongoing projects had increased capital of USD244.65 million. As of mid-February, 2014, the province licensed 1,401 FDI projects with a total registered capital of USD24.7 billion. In 2014, Dong Nai is expected to attract USD700-900 million of FDI capital, including both newly-licensed projects and those registering to increase their capital. According to the provincial People’s Committee, 2014’s target is lower than the result of 2013 because the locality follows the policy of attracting investment in hi-tech projects, supporting industry, service and infrastructure. In domestic investment, the locality is expected to attract VND7-8 trillion, with the focus on the real estate field. Last year, it lured USD1.64 billion of FDI capital, including newly-licensed and increased capital. Of this, 56 percent was poured into hi-tech projects and supporting industries./.
