They are Móng Cái, Đồng Đăng-Lạng Sơn, Lào Cai, and Cao Bằng border gate economic zones in the northern provinces of Quảng Ninh, Lạng Sơn, Lào Cai, and Cao Bằng, respectively; the Cầu Treo international border gate economic zone in the central province of Hà Tĩnh and the Lao Bảo special economic-trade zone in the central province of Quảng Trị; the Mộc Bài border gate economic zone in the southern province of Tây Ninh, and the Mekong Delta province of An Giang’s border gate economic zone.
The PM has assigned the Ministry of Planning and Investment to direct and guide localities to mobilise other legal capital sources to invest in the construction of technical and social infrastructure systems serving the sustainable development of the zones.
The People's Committees of provinces and centrally-run cities, meanwhile, have been tasked with preparing and assessing dossiers of investment projects on developing border gate zone infrastructure in accordance with objectives, principles, and quotas of the state budget allocation for 2021 – 2025.
Localities where the eight key zones are located have been ordered to arrange the state capital for their development throughout the period. — VNS
