A ceremony to announce the master plan for Dinh An economic zone until 2030 took place in the Mekong Delta province of Tra Vinh on Oct. 17.

Addressing the ceremony, Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Thien Nhan asked provincial leaders to pay attention to planning work, human resource development, transport systems, water supply and drainage, energy sources and policies to assist investors.

Covering a total area of over 39,000 hectares, Dinh An economic zone will focus on industry, trade, services, tourism, agro-forestry and fisheries connected with the marine-based economy.

Once completed, Dinh An economic zone will become one of economic centres of Tra Vinh province and serve as a gateway for international maritime trade and an important transport hub of the Mekong Delta and the southern coastal region.

At the ceremony, provincial authorities announced investment incentive policies and signed construction projects for Ngu Lac industrial zone, an oil refinery industrial zone, a non-tariff area, an urban area of Duyen Hai commune, and Long Toan port complex, which are all part of the economic zone.

So far, 11 investors have been granted licences to implement projects in the economic zone./.
