The Tay Bac Urban Zone, stretching over 9,000 hectares across Ho Chi Minh City's Hoc Mon and Cu Chi districts, will be put under a socialised programme, according to the municipal People's Committee.

Investors in the urban zone's infrastructure will enjoy land use fee reductions as encouragement.

According to the planning, the zone will be developed into a centre of education through the construction of many universities.-VNA
