It takes only about two hours to fly from Kien Giang to the capitals of all 10 Southeast Asian countries and Southern China by civil aviation. It also has a favorable position to open the important sea and air international routes through the Southeast Asia and Northern Asia. Although it is the delta province, there are forests, mountains, sea, and islands with abundant, diversified and rich resources.

The potential of land for agricultural development is relatively large, so it’s favorable to develop crops such as rice, pineapple, sugar, pepper, cajuput.... With abundant marine resources, a long coastline and a large tidal plain, Kien Giang has a favorable condition for diversified and rich exploitation and aquaculture. It is the only province in the Mekong Delta that has rather big and plentiful reserves of limestone and building stones.
