Accordingly, the district will house the Soc Son and Ni-Gia centralised industrial parks, the Phu Lo small- and medium-sized industrial park and the Minh Tri-Tan Dan clean industrial park.
In order to realise the plan, the locality must encourage industrial zones and clusters with functional facilities such as workers’ accommodations, parks, showrooms and warehouses.
The 1/10,000 plan orients Soc Son towards high-tech industrial zones and clusters with cutting-edge agricultural and forestry product processing technologies.
The plan advocates environmental production and works to constrain waste affecting soil, water and air as much as possible. Craft clusters will be also set up in the area in order to promote traditional crafts such as carpentry and rattan-bamboo weaving.
The same day, the municipal Department of Planning and Architecture announced master plans for the Soc Son satellite urban area and Ni town by 2030, both at the ratio of 1/5,000. Vuong Van But, Chairman of the Soc Son People’s Committee, said such plans target trade, service, tourism industry and ecological agriculture, thus creating favourable conditions for the locality to attract investment and spur local economy./.
