Hanoi (VNA) – The Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI) has asked the management boards of industrial and economic zones in provinces and centrally-run cities to submit reports on the construction and development of industrial and coastal economic zones this year to make a comprehensive evaluation on their operations.

Specifically, they are requested to focus on clarifying the achievements, shortcomings and suggest solutions (if any).

It is necessary for the management boards to provide information on investment attraction at coastal economic zones, the use of land as well as the implementation of industrial part infrastructure this year.

Reports should be submitted to the MPI before December 27, the ministry said.

According to the MPI, by the end of September, 563 industrial zones (IZs) in the country’s master plan for the development of IZs were approved by the prime minister with a total area of 210.900 hectares, accounting for 0.6 percent of the country’s total natural area. Of these, 291 IZs have been put into operation.

As many as 41 new and adjusted industrial infrastructure investment projects were given in principle approval in the first nine months of this year./.
