With many remarkable accomplishments, prides itself on the following aspects:

1. The management of construction and planning in industrial zones shall be implemented in strict accordance with the order and regulations and meet the requirements of investors and the socio-economic development orientation of the province.

In December 2000, Tien Son Industrial Zone - the first concentrated industrial zone of the province was started to operate. In order to improve the efficiency of land use in industrial zones, the Bacninh Industrial Zones Authority has advised the Provincial People's Committee to elaborate the project "Adjusting the development planning of industrial zones in Bac Ninh province to 2015 with orientation to 2020" which was approved by the Prime Minister in Document No.1511/TTg-KTN dated 20/8/2014. Accordingly, Bac Ninh now has 16 industrial zones that are approved by the Prime Minister, supplemented with a total planning area of ​​6,397.68 hectares. There are 11 IPs granted with investment certificates and establishment decisions (including 14 industrial parks infrastructure projects). 10 industrial zones have been put into operation (3,681.94 hectare of industrial zones has been in use, 2,609.4 hectares of industrial land is leased). The occupancy rate on the planned land area is 63.61%, on the recovered land area is 87.96%. Registered infrastructure investment capital now reaches US$ 2,811.08 million (FDI projects with registered capital of US$ 2,738.4 million, domestic projects with registered capital of US$ 72.65 million).

The order of construction in the industrial zones has become more and more routine. The planning and construction of the Bac Ninh IZs in a rational manner combined with the management of construction in accordance with the detailed planning in a way that contributed to the success of attracting investment in industrial zones. The establishment of a model of industrial park and urban areas has contributed to the formation of new urban areas in association with the development of industrial clusters and craft villages and the creation of new rural areas. Creating jobs, transfering labor restructure from agriculture to industry and services.

In the early years of building the industrial zones, red carpet were spread to attract investment. Major number of projects were small projects, domestic projects with low capital scale, focusing mainly on processing agricultural products, consumer goods, high-grade construction materials; Only two Canon projects accounted for 14% of total investment in Bac Ninh IPs (US$ 130 million/US$ 896 million). At that stage the investment rate was only 1-2 million US$/ha and about 3 million US$ /project.

Implementing the instructions of the Provincial People's Committee and other Ministries and Central Branches, Bacninh Industrial Zones Authority has actively advised the Provincial People's Committee to carry out well the investment promotion and attract many projects of big corporations with famous brands from 33 countries and territories in the world to invest in Bac Ninh IPs. By the end of July 2018, Bac Ninh IZs have attracted 1,278 investment projects with total registered capital of over US$17.43 billion, of which 848 FDI projects with total registered investment capital US$15.4 billion; 430 domestic projects with total registered capital of 2.03 billion US$. All the projects use new machinery and equipments, advanced production technology, clean production, and no environmental issues. The investment in machinery, equipments and technology (including technology transfer) of FDI projects in this period accounted for over 60% of total registered investment capital of projects. This is an important factor contributing to the increase of technological value in the value of products, minimizing factors affecting the environment, enhancing the competitiveness of products, thus enhancing the industrial production value, export value of Bac Ninh Industrial Zones.
