Spirulina in Vietnam (Hanoi)

(information as of August Protected content

1. Where is the best place in Vietnam to implant a production unit of Spirulina.

According to Mr. Lang - a famous, well-known professor in Vietnam, basically Spirulina can be grown anywhere in Vietnam. As long as control pH = 9.0 andprovide more CO2.

About weather, Vietnam is a tropical country (different humidity with France). In the North, there is 4 seasons, include winter, so it's cold in winter. In the Middle, lots of typhoons, storms pass by it. So in my opinion, it will be the best to plant Spirulina in the South of Vietnam.

2. Ownership of land.

If your company is 100% foreign own company, you CAN'T buy a land in Vietnam,
you only can RENT a land, which either:
- belong to Vietnam government.
- belong to Vietnamese who live oversea.
- belong to rented land of other foreign company.

Rental time: project life time, but maximum is 50 years.

Procedures: Documents: project investment demonstration and investment certificate (notarized copy).

Exact procedures: need to ask a law service

It is best to rent the land from local government.

Rental rate depends on each province, and you need to ask at provincial people committee (local government of each province).

Investors are encouraged to invest in Duc Hoa district by the government.
The price varies depend on type of land and its position.

For example: agricultural land which near road, next to road at a commune of Duc Hoa district, price is 108,000 VND/m2/year for the first 50m from the road, price is 90,000 VND/m2/year for 50m-100m next.
