The Prime Minister has approved the master plan for Thanh Thuy border gate economic zone in Vi Xuyen district, in the northern mountainous province of Ha Giang, by 2030.
The zone which covers seven communes, borders Wenshan, Yunnan province, to the north, with a 26 km-long border.
The 28,781 ha economic zone is a combination of such sectors as trade, service, industry and agro-forestry. It will act as an international trade gateway and a bridge linking China’s Yunnan province and north Vietnam as well as ASEAN countries and northeast Asia.
Under the master plan, the EZ will become one of the economic and cultural centres of Ha Giang and will offer a chance for the province to escape poverty and integrate into the national and regional economies.
