DECISION No. 52/2008/QD-TTg: Border-gate economic zones get a boost

Updated: 09:22’ - 27/05/2008

By 2020, the country will have a total of 30 border-gate economic zones, including seven new ones, which will become driving forces of development in border provinces and generate an estimated USD 42-43 billion from cross-border goods and services trade with China, Laos and Cambodia.

This is a major target set forth in the master plan on development of Vietnam’s border-gate economic zones approved by the Prime Minister under Decision No. 52/2008/QD-TTg of April 25. Infrastructure works and uniform organization and administration of the nine border-gate economic zones of Mong Cai, Lao Cai, Lang Son, Cau Treo, Bo Y, Moc Bai, An Giang, Dong Thap and Lao Bao will be developed with priority given to those acting as international and interregional hubs of economic exchange.

The development of these zones should be in line with the planned formation of border urban centers and residential areas for inhabitants of border communes, especially those in the Vietnam-China border regions. Apart from developing commerce, services, import and export and transit tourism through border gates as well as building border markets and industrial zones, border provinces are assigned to properly perform the zoning and protection of natural forests, especially border protective forests, and facilitate the construction of national highway N1 linking provinces bordering Cambodia under the planning of the Ministry of Construction.-
