In 2017, the WHA 1 Industrial Zone – Nghe An project was approved by the Prime Minister in Decision No. 681/QD-TTg dated May 22, 2017.

The planned area of the project is 498 hectares, with a total investment of 2.056,5 billion VND (equivalent to 92,2 million USD). From 2017 to 2020, the investors implemented the construction and completed Zone 1 with an area of 143,5 hectares.

WHA is coordinating with the Management Board of the Southeast Economic Zone, departments, and Nghi Loc district to carry out land clearance for Phase 2 of the project, covering an area of 354,5 hectares.

According to WHA Group’s leadership, if the land handover progress follows the plan, Phase 2 can be completed by the end of 2023. Currently, the investor is also proceeding with the design of Phase 3 and proposing investment for Phase 4, covering the total project area of 1.850 hectares.

Upon completion, WHA 1 Industrial Zone – Nghe An will become a large industrial park with international standard infrastructure in the North Central region of Vietnam, connecting production, manufacturing, and distribution centers to serve the domestic and international markets.
