PM approves plan to build Dung Quat economic zone

Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung, on August 16, signed a decision to approve a plan to develop the Dung Quat Economic Zone in the central province of Quang Ngai up to 2020.

Under the plan, the EZ will be built into an industry, trade, service and tourism complex, with oil refinement and petrochemistry being its key areas.

The EZ will also accommodate businesses in mechanical engineering, shipbuilding, steel rolling, and cement and consumers’ goods production.

It will become one of the central region’s urban-industrial-service centre.
