The authorities in Vietnam’s coastal Quang Ninh Province have set out a transport infrastructure development plan. The programme of works will prioritise development of the Van Don Economic Zone (Van Don EZ) under the plan. The programme of works involved is expected to be worth US$358 million.
New roads are planned, along with new bridges to provide better connections to some of the many islands in the province. The existing Van Don Airport will also benefit from an upgrade to boost capacity.
Quang Ninh Province has traditionally relied on fishing for much of its economy in the past. However the Van Don EZ is expected to bring industry to the area, while new transport links would help increase the levels of tourism.
