The Prime Minister has agreed in principle to adjust the master plan for the construction of the Dinh Vu-Cat Hai Economic Zone in the Hai Phong city by 2025.

The Hai Phong People ‘s Committee proposed adjustments and additions be made to the previously-approved plan, including the additional construction of ports and wharfs for international cruise ships and the handling of liquid goods, as well as the development of Cai Trap Island as an eco-tourism area with shopping centres and luxury resorts.

According to the local authorities, the added components aim to fully tap into the city’s current strengths and potentials.

The PM tasked the municipal People’s Committee with collecting feedback from the Ministry of Construction in order to prepare, assess, and approve the proposed changes in line with legal regulations.

Previously, the PM approved the master plan for constructing the Dinh Vu-Cat Hai Economic Zone by 2025, which aims to turn the combined economic area that serves various sectors in the northern coastal region into an international logistics hub.

The plan aims to establish modern industrial parks and attractive urban areas in the city, thus drawing in more investments and high-quality human resources.-VNA
