Company introduction:

DEEP C Industrial Zones is a Belgian developer and operator of an Industrial zone and port infastructure cluser in Haiphong and Quang Ninh province - the most dynamic growing region in North Vietnam.

Our story began in 1997 with the development of DEEP C Haiphong I (formerly known as Dinh Vu Industrial Zone), a collaboration between Belgian investor Rent-A-Port and Haiphong People’s Committee.
