Foreign capital pours into Vietnam’s industrial real estate

The Vietnamese industrial real estate market continues to record positive signals, attracting a large amount of foreign capital.

The main leverage of foreign capital inflows in the first quarter of this year came from the industrial real estate segment.

VSIP Bac Ninh Co Ltd increased capital by nearly $941 million for the investment project to build urban infrastructure and VSIP Bac Ninh services, which helped the total registered capital of foreign investment in real estate to leap.

With this capital increase, Singapore continues to maintain its leading position in foreign investment flows into Vietnam in the first quarter, with a total registered capital of $2.29 billion, accounting for 25.7 per cent of total investment capital into Vietnam.

In the southern province of Long An, a significant industrial park real estate from Singapore has also announced a new land fund of 20.9ha in Vinh Loc 2 Industrial Park and 22.3ha in Xuyen A Industrial Park for factories to rent.

These are the first two projects of BW in the province and are part of the company’s expansion strategy in key industrial areas adjacent to Ho Chi Minh City.

These two projects are expected to be completed in the second and fourth quarters of next year, respectively, providing 433sqm of two-storey ready-built warehouse.

Nguyen Thanh Thanh, head of the economic zone authority of Long An province, said that thanks to the promotion and investment attraction taking place throughout and without interruption during the pandemic last year, the process of investing in industrial land in the province has prospered from the beginning of this year.

“From the beginning of the year until now, it has attracted $230 million in foreign direct investment [FDI], including new registration and capital adjustment into industrial parks. Domestic investment has reached over seven trillion dong [$304 million].

“There are many big projects, such as Coca-Cola’s investment in a factory with a total capital of more than $136 million in Phu An Thanh Industrial Park in Ben Luc district,” Thanh told the Dau tu (Investment) newspaper.

Long An’s foreign investment attraction was based on investment procedures and licenses improving, as many businesses received certificates within the same day, he added.

The massive influx of international investors into the industrial real estate market has pushed up industrial land rents.

JLL’s industrial real estate market report shows that industrial land prices still maintained strong growth momentum in the first quarter of this year, a year-on-year increase of 8.5 per cent.

This is attributed to the wave of FDI poured into the country after restoring flights and opening international borders. The average rental price of industrial land is $120 per metre per lease cycle.

JLL said that the ready-built factory market has moved to a larger scale to meet the needs of tenants, especially international customers who choose to lay foundations or expand production in Vietnam, but wanted to save time, cost and quickly put businesses into operation.
