The Thai Binh Economic Zone covers an area of 31,000 hectares in 30 communes and one town in the districts of Thai Thuy and Tien Hai.
It is one of 17 economic zones in Vietnam, which functions as both an industrial cluster and a coastal service-trade-urban area. Investors in the zone will receive incentives in line with the Government’s policy.
Speaking at the decision announcement ceremony, Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Hong Dien said that this was a very important event, marking the first step of the formation and development of Thai Binh Economic Zone.
Once operational, the zone will capitalize on the potential in local workforce, land and natural gas resources, and the convenient transport networks, he noted.
The zone is expected to significantly contribute to the province’s socio-economic development in the future.
A steering committee for the construction of the Thai Binh Economic Zone will be set up and led by Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Hong Dien.
Also at the ceremony, the establishment of a management board for the economic zones and industrial parks of Thai Binh province was declared, with Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Pham Van Ca working as its head.
