PM okays south central economic zone's development plan

Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung on September 7 approved the setting up of an economic zone straddling southern Phu Yen-northern Khanh Hoa by 2025.

According to the approved development plan, the zone will cover more than 3,500 square kilometers in Phu Yen Province's Song Hinh, Dong Hoa and Tay Hoa districts, and Khanh Hoa Province's Van Ninh and Ninh Hoa districts.

The plan features the zone as export gateways for the Central Highlands and it would play an important role in development of the central coastal areas.

The zone’s population is expected to reach 860,000 by 2025.
