Key Information investor needs to know prior to investing in Tuyên Quang Province

Are you an investor looking to initiate a major project in Tuyen Quang province? Are you struggling to find information about the location, land, labor, electricity, and water conditions for your potential investment? Here's the essential information you need to explore before investing in a project in Tuyen Quang province.

Tuyen Quang is a province situated in the northern midland and mountainous region, approximately 165 km from the capital city of Hanoi. When traveling from downtown Hanoi to Tuyen Quang, you have the option of two routes. The first route: Travel via the Nội Bài - Lào Cai expressway (labeled CT.05) and take the IC09 exit leading to Phu Tho town, Thanh Ba town, and ultimately to Tuyen Quang (excluding the travel time from downtown Hanoi to the Noi Bai - Lao Cai expressway). The total travel time is around 3 hours. The second route: Journey via the Nội Bài - Lào Cai expressway and take the IC04 exit (interchange with National Route 2B at Kim Long commune, Tam Duong district, heading to Tam Dao town, Vinh Phuc province). The total travel time is a little over 2 hours. In the near future, upon the completion of the connecting road from Tuyen Quang to the Noi Bai - Lao Cai expressway (approximately 39.2 km), the travel time from Hanoi to Tuyen Quang is expected to reduce to about 1.5 hours.
