Although industrial production has still faced many difficulties, with the stable operation of two ICs, the value of industrial production (at current prices) in Yen Lap district reached VND626.89 billion, an increase of 24.0% over the same period in 2018.

In 2020, Yen Lap district strives to increase the industrial production value to over VND800 billion, mainly in processing industries and garment industries.
