(VOVWORLD) - Located in Thuy Nguyen district, Hai Phong city, Shinec Nam Cau Kien (Nam Cau Kien Industrial Park) is a leading ecological industrial park in Vietnam, developing in a socio-economic, green and sustainable manner. This is a pioneering project in the development of ecological, circular and heritage‑style industrial parks. With a chain of symbiotic links in the circular economy model, Nam Cau Kien has applied digital transformation for governance and sustainable development.

 Nam Cau Kien resembles an ecological area with gardens and fish ponds. Production areas and factories are well-organized on nearly 170 hectares out of a total of 263 hectares of land. 60% of the land is used for industry and the remainder is reserved for building social infrastructure, such as parks, trees, public land, and transportation infrastructure.

Nam Cau Kien Industrial Park has attracted more than 60 investors from countries and territories around the world, including Japan, South Korea, the Netherlands, Italy, Singapore, China, and Hong Kong (China). 100% of industrial land has been occupied and the IP is working on the second phase of construction..

Pham Hong Diep, Chairman of Shinec Joint Stock Company, the primary investor of Nam Cau Kien IP, said the company’s leaders have realized the inevitable trend of applying information technology in ecological IPs.

“Digital transformation plays an extremely important role in improving production and management, especially for a facility housing nearly 100 domestic and foreign businesses operating in diverse industries. In addition to a knowledgeable management staff with fundamental expertise and management skills, digital technology is badly needed to better handle customer request, improve productivity and management and create added value,” said Diep.

Heru Kutanto, Director of the Department of Industry under the Ministry of Industry of Indonesia, commented on the green and sustainable ecological model at the IP and how it has applied digital transformation to its management system.

This complex operates in a smooth, closed, and circular manner through its digital management system. We highly appreciate the Vietnamese government’s commitments and policies in building such eco-industrial parks,” he said.
