According to experts, many customers and investors are tending to focus on urban areas near Ho Chi Minh City such as Duc Hoa District and Can Giuoc District ( Long An Province ) because of their competitive land price, availability of major national traffic projects, fresh environmental conditions and especially convenient location near Ho Chi Minh City center.

Senior Consultant of Global Integration Business Consultants (GIBC), Mr. Phuoc Nghia Huynh said: "The land price of some locations near Saigon is in an unpredictable escalating situation ". He said that some areas in Dong Nai Province and Long An Province, except Binh Duong Province, had a significant increase in land in the last 6-12 months.

According to Mr. Huynh, the capability of infrastructures also affects the land price in Long An Province. The more connectivity between adjacent areas and urban areas, the more land price rises higher. The infrastructure of Ho Chi Minh City connecting to neighboring provinces has become an undeniable advantage to attracting investors and promote local economic growth.
