Meanwhile, Shenzhen Stock Exchange-listed Luxshare ICT will built a factory to produce electronic components on an area of 14 hectares in the park at a cost of $100 million.
Its construction is set to start next month and to create 6,000 jobs once the plant comes into operation.
Luxshare ICT is provider of components, mainly cables, for Apple
, Lenovo, Sony, Asus, Dell and Huawei, KBC said on its website.
KBC and the two Chinese companies inked the rental agreements during a five-day China tour of Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc
that ended September 15.
