Up to now, the province has more than 14,000 enterprises, ranked second in the North Central region, marking a rapid development in both quantity and quality. The structure, scale and field of operation have changed in accordance with the economic restructuring; efficiency and competitiveness have been improved. However, the majority of enterprises (more than 97%) are small in scale; there have not been many enterprises with breakthrough production and business strategies; there are not many enterprises and entrepreneurs reaching out to become big brands. Lack of capital, insurance debt, late payment of wages, inefficient production and business, and losses still exist in some enterprises, etc.
In the coming time, the Chairman of the PPC suggested that the Enterprise Associations and entrepreneurs must have aspiration to develop, build strategies and plans for production and business suitable to the characteristics and situation of enterprises and practical conditions.

Enterprise associations need to promote their role in supporting member enterprises, especially promoting connection activities, helping enterprises overcome difficulties together and adapt to the new period.
