To accomplish the research objectives, the dissertation focused on studying
to answer the following research questions:
1. Research motivation
Thai Binh is an agricultural province in the center of Northern Delta, the
industrial proportion in the economic structure is low. To implement
objectives of industrial development, Thai Binh government has
established, issued a number of policies, including policies to encourage
investment and industrial development of the province. The system of these
policies has actually achieved certain results in the process of industrial
development in Thai Binh province. However, policies for encouraging
local investment currently reveals overlapping and inadequacies.
Policies to encourage investment are composed of many unit policies, but
previous studies did not indicate the degree of influence of each policy on
development process of industry as well as analyze the level of influence of
factors on policies, especially applying an approach from theoretical study
for the areas and local.
That was why the reseacher chose the topic "Policy to encourage
investment and industrial development of Thai Binh province" for the
Firstly, forming the theoretical framework for the study of policies to
encourage investment and industrial development in Thai Binh province.
Identifying factors affecting policies, and then clarifying the subjects being

and industrial development of Thai Binh province in the period from 2006
to 2013, indicating strengths, limitations and shortcomings of these
policies, conditions for successful implementation of policy solutions.
Thirdly, proposing solutions that have a scientific basis in order to
complete policies of encouraging investment and industrial development in
Thai Binh province, being suitable to the context of international economic
integration and reality of socio-economic development in Thai Binh
province as well as in Vietnam.
Which basic unit policies belong to system of policies encouraging
investment and local industrial development.?
- What factors affect policies encouraging investment and local industrial
- What methods are used to assess the influence level of the unit policies of
policies encouraging investment and local industrial development.?
- How are current situations of industrial development in Thai Binh
- What criteria are chosen to assess current situations of policies
encouraging investment and local industrial development.? Strengths and
weaknesses of these policies and causes of the weaknesses?

encouraging investment and industrial development in Thai Binh province.
6. The dissertation structure: 4 chapters
5. Research implications
Implications for academics, argument
The dissertation supplemented and clarified the theoretical framework
studying policies encouraging investment and provincal industrial
development based on overview basis of research work in and out of the
country on this issue that were: (1) Identify four basic unit policies
belonging to policies encouraging investment and provincial industrial
development including incentive policy of land use, policy supporting
infrastructure, policy promoting investment and supporting public services,
policy supporting human resources training. These are the key policies
having a significant impact on local industrial development, as well as
policies that provincial governments have the ability to manipulate and
make specific decisions, being suitable to real conditions in the local. (2)
Putting forward econometric model including four independent variables
which are the aforementioned policies and the dependent variable is
intending to continue expanding investment in the industry sectors of
businesses. The dissertation tested dependent relationships and proved that
intending to continue expanding investment in the industry sectors of
businesses were affected by these 4 policies.
Conclusions and recommendations from the research findings
- Policies encouraging investment and industrial development in Thai Binh
province are suitable to the actual situations and are important solutions

1.1.3 Conclusions from the research overview
The studies focused on the process of analyzing the central policy, mostly
looking for solutions to measures to encourage investment to improve the
investment environment in Vietnam. However, there were not studies on
policies encouraging investment and local industrial development in
approach from theoretical research to apply to areas and localities. The
studies did not give adequate factors affecting investment policies in
localities as well as ways to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of
policies at the provincial government level.
There have been no researches on policies encouraging investment and
industrial development at the level of provincial government policies
towards research on the influence of each unit policy of policies
encouraging investment and local industrial development, affected factors
and solutions completing policies that are suitable to reality in the local,
developing advantageous industry sectors in the local to contribute to the
process of restructuring local economic sectors.

investment and local intrustrial development
a) Assessing effectiveness of policies
Effectiveness of policies = Results / Objectives
Criteria of Effectiveness 1: Assessing results of policy is through some
criteria: (1): Number of businsses investing in industry in the provincial
areas; (2) Scale of investment capital in industry sectors in the provincial
areas; (3) Contribution level to the state budget of businesses investing in
industry sectors in the provincial areas; (4) Export turnover of key products
in industry sectors.

Attitude and actions from people, businesses to policies
2.3.1 Experiences from foreign countries: Experiences from Maha
Sorakham province in Northern East, Thailand; Experiences from Giang To
province - China; Experiences from Taiwan
2.3.2 Experiences in Viet Nam - Experiences from Nam Dinh province
2.3.3 Experienced lessons for Thai Binh
- Firstly, policies encouraging investment and local industrial development
need to be suitable with local characteristics.
- Secondly, there should be a unified perspective of incentives,
encouraging strategic industry sectors in the industrial development
strategy of the country in general and Thai Binh province in particular,
from which there are suitable incentive methods, not contradicted.
- Thirdly, ensuring unification between the central policies and policies of
local governments. Policies encouraging investment and local industrial
development cannot separate policies encouraging national investment.
- Fourthly, policies encouraging investment should be suitable with local
industrial development strategy and focus on creating jobs in local.
- Fifthly, while implementing policies, requiring clear delegation and
devolution, avoiding overlapping of functions and tasks.
- Sixthly, policies encouraging investment and local industrial development
have to attract participation not only from the state management agency but
requiring participation of other subjects in all economic sectors.
CHAPTER 3: ANALYZING CURRENT SITUATIONS OF
POLICIES ENCOURAGING INVESTMENT AND INDUSTRIAL
DEVELOPMENT IN THAI BINH PROVINCE
For state management officials, when surveying on this issue, average point
was 3.31. Specifically, 27.5% of officials surveyed said that the services
providing information by the provincial governments to busiensses were
complete; 22 % assessed the information provided is clear and complete.
3.1 Overview of national conditions, socio-economic conditions in Thai
Binh province affecting policies encouraging investment and industrial
3.2 Current situations of industrial development
3.3 Current situations of policies encouraging investment and
industrial development in Thai Binh province
3.3.1 Current situations of incentive policy on land use
3.3.2 Current situations of policy supporting infrastructure
3.3.3 Current situations of policy promoting investment and supporting
3.3.4 Current situations of policy supporting human resources training
3.4 Assessment of effectiveness and efficiency of policies encouraging
investment and industrial development in Thai Binh province
3.4.1 Effectiveness of policies
- The performance results of targets for industrial production value in the
period 2006- 2010 and the period 2011 -2013 were not achieved: the period
2006 -2010, the target set to growth rate of 27% while performance result
was 25.2%, especially in the period 2011-2015: the target set to growth rate
of industrial production value of 20% but in the period 2011-2013 was only
10.7%. Although the period was unfinished but with these results it is very
difficult to achieve goals.
- Convenience level of approaching policy information in provincial
The survey result of 258 businesses assessed: 18.6% of the surveyed
businesses assessing services provided information by the provincial
governments to businesses at low level; 25.2% assessed at a medium level;
34.1% assessed at a good level and 22.1% assessed at very a good level.
Average point was 3.6.
- Satisfaction level of policy subjects with unit policies when implementing
- Satisfaction of policy objects for the department policy when the policy is
When evaluating the satisfaction level of policy subjects with unit policies
when they were implemented, the average point of businesses with the policies
was only at low medium level.
3.4.2 Efficiency of policies
- Supporting funds from the local governments to implement policies
For supporting funds for promoting investment over the years had
increased but at a low level. Specifically, an increase from 2,317 million
VND in 2012 to 2,690 million VND in 2013 and 2,820 million VND in
2014. It proved that, Thai Binh provincial governments had investing plans
in this activity but supporting level was limited.
Regarding the financial support of the provincial governments to provide
vocational training for workers, 35.7% of businesses surveyed rated that the
supporting level was high; 53.5% rated at a moderate level. The average
point was 3.21. For management officials, 29.7% rated at a high level;
14.3% rated supporting level at a very high level, but 33% rated supporting
level at a low level. Therefore, it can be seen that, even the management
officials who are directly involved in setting policies have contradicted
assessments. Hence, there should be more careful and practical studies, so
policies become a more effective tool to help local governments when
- Assessment of businesses about efficiency of each unit policy of policies
encouraging investment and local industrial development
(1) Efficiency of incentive policy on land use
According to the survey results, 22.5% of business rated that support from
the authorities for ground clearance is very inefficient; 34.1% said that it
was not efficient; 19% rated that it was at a moderate level. Meanwhile, the
percentage of efficiency assessment was only 16.7%; 7.8% said that it was
very effective (mean 2.53)
investment: 5.8% of businesses surveyed rated that the policy was
inefficient; 50.4% of businesses surveyed rated that the polity had low
efficiency; 30.2% rated at a moderate level; 12.4% rated it was efficient
and only 1.2% rated that it was very efficient. Mean was 2.53.
(2) Efficiency of policy supporting infrastructure
3.5 Analyzing effect of policy encouraging investment and industrial
development in Thai Binh province on intending to expand investment
in production and business of businesses through the survey data
- Assessment of businesses about efficiency of policy supporting
The survey results of 258 businesses on efficiency of policy supporting
infrastructure: 48.8% of surveyed rated that the policy had low efficiency;
42.6% of businsses rated at a moderate level; only 7.8% rated that the
policy was efficient and 0.8% rated that the policy was very effective. The
mean of assessment was below medium, only 2.6.
(3) Efficiency of policy promoting investment and supporting public
The survey results of 258 businesses on the efficiency of policy promoting
investment: 3.1% of businesses surveyed rated that the policy was
inefficient; 37.6% of businesses surveyed rated that the policy had low
efficiency; 21.7% rated at a moderate level; 25.2% rated that it was
efficient and 12.4% rated that it was very efficient. Mean of assessment
was 3.06. The survey results of officials were similar with mean of 3.11.
Where 23.15% of officials surveyed rated that the supporting policy was
efficient; 15.4% said that it was very efficient.
- Assessment about efficiency of policy supporting public services
The survey results of both subjects were quite similar about efficiency of
policy supporting public services and were also at an over medium level.
Specifically, businesses’ side, 49.2% of businesses surveyed rated that the
supporting policy was efficient; 11.2% rated that it was very efficient.
Mean was 3.41. Management officials’ side, mean was 3.49.
(4) Efficiency of policy supporting human resources training
- Assessing efficiency of the financial support from the provincial
The survey results of 258 businesses on efficiency of policy promoting
Y = 0,139 X1+ 0,143 X2 + 0,109X3 + 0,094X4 + 1,957
Where: Y: Intend to expand investment in production and business of
businesses; X1: Incentive policy on land use; X2: Policy supporting
infrastructure; X3: Policy supporting human resources training; X4: policy
promoting investment and supporting public services
3.6 Achievements, limitations of policies and causes
3.6.1 Achievements of policies and causes
3.6.2 Limitations of policies and causes
* Incentive policy on land use
- For planning work: Efficiency of planning work was not high, the
percentage of land area retrieved compared to the planning area was not
high, and the percentage of retrieving land in the planning area was low.
- For ground clearance work: In the context of the policy, it only mentioned
support from local governments about funds for compensation and ground
clearance and did not mention the role of local governments to resolutely
implement the ground clearance following the schedule leading to many
projects delayed due to not being able to implement ground clearance by
many different causes, not only from funding problems. Thus, although it
was incentive policy on land use, but businesses did not approach land
expected to be rent.
+ The policy stipulated the approval procedure or granted investment
certificates, but did not mention the content after licensing. When there
were changes in policies, there were not financial regulations on transitions
between the policy of previous stage and the policy of later period leading
to problems of businesses not being resolved promptly.
* Policies supporting infrastructure
- In policy supporting infrastructure only the content of supporting
technical infrastructure was mentioned, but the content of supporting social
infrastructure was not mentioned.
- About supporting funds: Supporting funds from the authorities in Thai
Binh province to build infrastructure remained low, at different levels and
lack of synchronization.
* Policy promoting investment and supporting public services
+ Content of activities promoting investment was lacked and ineffective.
There were a number of expensive investment promotions but the
information for investors was still very sketchy. The projects called for new
investment only gave information about sectors, total investment capital...
very general. While there were a lot of specific information that investors
needed did not have. Information of investment promotion did not reflect
things that local areas needed and show what investors wanted.
+ Funds organizing activities of investment promotion was still very limited.
Most of promoting activities were organized by sponsored funds, or combined
with other activities, but there was not an expenditure source only for
- Policy supporting public services
+ For investment management: The policy was a bit tight but the procedures
for investment were inconsistent, time to resolve procedures was long.
+ For resolving investment procedures: Businesses were not aware of
procedure process so the file was not enough and legal then it had to be
corrected and supplemented; opinions from some units were not cared
enough; coordination among agencies was loosen and slow. Administrative
reform had changes but some bureaus and local areas implemented slowly,
which did not meet the requirements, create conditions, encourage and
attract investment projects.
For business registration: Licensing business registration online was not
done as infrastructure, information technology facilities at the Bureau did
not meet the requirements... Credit guarantee was not established for small
and medium-sized enterprises as stipulated in Decree No. 90/2001/ ND-CP
of the Government. Implementing interest subsidy for capital loans to
businesses was not very big because they did not meet the procedures.
* Policy supporting human resources training
+ Support mechanisms were still scattered and not focused on key points so
there was lack of capital to carry out encouraging investment. Policy
regulations on vocational training for labors were not done well. Training of
human resources was not put in right place for policies encouraging
investment. Policy training human resources was confused and passive, there
was no synchronization with other unit policies in the system of encouraging
investment. Support funds for businesses was only mentioned in the content
of new policies when carrying out vocational training for employees but
there was no specific orientation for these businesses about vocational
training to encourage local investment.
* Causes of limitations
- Policies were not really adapted to the international environment
movements as well as the domestic environment, especially in the
investment environment of the Red River Delta.
- Financial resources of Thai Binh province to policy implementation
- Strategy for developing industry sectors of Thai Binh province did not
really clarify the local strengths.
- Identifying and selecting policy issues were limited.
- There was lack of participation from subjects affected by policies, so it
did not really meet the practical requirements.
- Not really focusing on assessing policy options that were given in the
process of setting up policies.
- There was no clear delegation and devolution when organizing and
- Communication to policies was not done well.
CHAPTER 4: SENTIMENTS AND SOLUTIONS TO COMPLETE
POLICIES ENCOURAGING INVESTMENT AND INDUSTRIAL
DEVELOPMENT IN THAI BINH PROVINCE
4.1 Orientation of developing industry in Thai Binh province to 2020
4.2 Orientation of attracting investment and industrial developming in
Thai Binh province to 2020
- Content of policies has to identify important sectors and fields, needing to
encourage strategic and long term investment.
- Setting up policies encouraging investment highly feasibly, defining
clearly incentive fund sources, mechanisms, specifications, beneficiaries,
resolving bodies, procedures..., implementation of financial regulations
- Attracting selectively, focusing on projects using high technology, clean
technology and being able to create competitive products; projects
producing exports; projects developing supporting industry; projects likely
participating in global value chains, contributing big budget. The general
trend is not increasing outsourcing projects, pure assembly, paying
attention to attracting creative industrial projects. On the other hand, paying
attention to projects using many employees, overcoming jobs in remote and
switching areas with idle employees.
4.3 Sentiments completing policies encouraging investment and
industrial development in Thai Binh province
4.4 Solutions completing policies encouraging investment and
industrial development in Thai Binh province
4.4.1 Completing incentive policy on land use
- Firstly, land policy must stem from planning
4.4.2 Completing policy supporting infrastructure
Implementing incentive mechanisms, encouraging investment in building
houses for employees, developing social services for specialists and
- Having appropriate policies to support enterprises to invest in building
houses for workers in industrial zones, besides free land use policies, it is
essential to have policy supporting investment capital in housing
infrastructure to workers.
4.4.3 Completing policy promoting investment and supporting public
* Policy promoting investment:
- Strengthening propaganda and broadcasting Thai Binh image in order to
Strengthen state management work, investment promotion must be closely
linked to the management of foreign investment, so support to investors is
unified throughout all three stages of prepararing projects, licensing and
implementing activities. Good investment promotion will attract more
investment projects, which creates precursors for investment management
and on the contrary, good investment management is also an effective
method, least expensive to campaign investment promotion.
* Policy supporting public services
- Continuing to promote administrative reform, improving accountability,
quality of advising, guiding and resolving procedures for investors, in
which completing one-door mechanisms in Authoriy for Planning and
Investment. Further strengthening work of verifying license of investment
certificates as well as inspecting and monitoring investment activities.
- Thirdly, reducing time approaching land
- Completing the process, simplifying investment procedures. Policies in
the province should gradually shift from "incentive cash" to "postincentives" to encourage businesses that have produced and done business
to continue to expand more investment.
- Fourthly, developing land management staff team
4.4.4 Completing policy supporting human resources training
- Fifthly, paying more attention to communication
- Applying policy supporting businesses to train human resources, through
- Secondly, the process of compensation and ground clearance needs
changing, eliminating difficulties for businesses.
business support of expenditure to train and retrain workers.
- Needing to specify policies supporting human resources training. Policies
support human resources training not only refer to the level of support
funds for businesses in the process of training human resources. In this
policy, it is necessary to pay attention to advising, supporting employees
while looking for jobs after apprenticeship.
4.5 Conditions implementing solutions
(1) The central should continue to complete macroeconomic policies on
investment, encourage investment in industry sectors (2) Strengthen
coordination and cooperation with other local areas in the Red River Delta
region; (3) Enhance quality of planning and developing industrial sectors;
(4) Improve efficiency of planning and organizing policy implementation;
(5) Improve the transparency of policies; (6) Strengthen propaganda for
The dissertation title Policy encouraging investment and industrial
development in Thai Binh province did some of the following contents:
The dissertation clarified the literature review and formed the theoretical
framework of policies encouraging investment and industrial development
in Thai Binh province. The dissertation identified four basic unit policies,
highly decentralized by the Central to the provincial governments:
Incentive policy on land use; Policy supporting infrastructure; policy
promoting investment and supporting public services; policy supporting
human resources training. Supplementing and clarifying concepts,
objectives and principles of implementing policy objectives with the
provincial government level approach method. Identify factors affecting
policies including factors of policy context, factors of policy entities,
factors of policy subjects.
The dissertation assessed current situations of industrial development in
Thai Binh province, current situations of policies encouraging investment,
determined criteria to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of policies,
thereby determining the level of influence of policies encouraging
investment to the process of industrial development in Thai Binh province
in the period from 2006 to 2013. The dissertation clearly showed strengths,
limitations and shortcomings of the policies: (1) Some policy issues were
overlapping and conflicting, many unsuitble points with reality in the local
areas, (2) Support mechanisms were still scattered, lack of focus, (3) Lack
of financial regulations in management work and policy implementation;
(4) Lack of financial regulations shifting among the policy periods; (5)
Building policy was not derived from planning; (6) Lack of coordination
among the units in the process of organizing and implementing policies.
The dissertation proved the influence of policies encouraging investment on
the process of industrial development in Thai Binh province; the influence
level of each unit policy of policies encouraging investment and industrial
development in Thai Binh province on intending to continue expansing
investment of businesses and assessed the importance of these policies.
The dissertation proposed scientific solutions to complete policies
encouraging investment and industrial development in Thai Binh province,
including: solution group to complete incentive policy on land use, solution
group to complete policy supporting infrastructure, solution group to
complete polity promoting investment and supporting public services,
solution group to complete policy supporting human resources training.
The dissertation proposed conditions to be able to implement solutions
completing policies on the basis of being suitable with other local areas in
the country. Specifically: (1) The central continued to complete
macroeconomic policies on investing, encouraging investment of the
industrial sectors; (2) Strengthen coordination and cooperation with other
local regions in the Delta region Red River; (3) Enhance quality of the
planning work and industrial development; (4) Improve efficiency of
planning and organizing policy implementation; (5) Improve the
transparency of the policies; (6) Strengthen propaganda for policies.
The research findings of the dissertation was the reference for further
studies on investment attraction activities, the state management policy to
encourage investment in industrial sectors and promote movements of
