HA NOI (Biz Hub) — The Ministry of Planning and Investment has publicised norms for 267 conditional business areas to help enterprises meet requirements under the revised Investment Law which takes effect from July 1.

The conditions are classified into 16 sections. They are national security and defence; judiciary; finance; industry and trade; labour, invalids and social affairs; and transport; construction; as well as information and communications.

Education and training; agriculture and rural development; planning and investment; health; science and technology; as well as culture, sports and tourism; natural resources and environment; and banking are the remaining conditions.

Each section has specific conditional business areas and provides the details of the conditions that must be complied with along with the existing regulations.

Business registrations for conditional business areas will be carried out in accordance with the requirements of these sections.

Business categories under conditional projects include distribution, logistics, healthcare, education, as well as tobacco production and printing.
