The Prime Minister has signed a decision to approve a master plan for building the Mong Cai border gate economic zone in the northeast province of Quang Ninh by 2030, a drive to make the zone a proactive and key economic growth pole in the north.

The 121,197 hectare zone will cover 17 wards of Mong Cai city, Hai Ha industrial zone and seaport, Quang Ha town and a number of communes in Hai Ha district.

It is set to include a tax-free area, industrial zones, a financial centre, an administrative centre, a residential area and other functional areas.

In addition, it will accommodate modern and comprehensive facilities with excellent service networks and diversified tourism products.

Once operational, it will improve resident living standards while playing an important role in defending Vietnam’s sea and island sovereignty.
