Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has agreed in principle to adjustments to the planning of Bai Thom Commune in Kien Giang Province’s Phu Quoc Island.

The adjustments were proposed by the provincial People’s Committee.

Local authorities were asked to update the adjustments on the island’s master plan by 2030 and to enhance management activity to ensure the implementation of the plan is compliant with land regulations, urban planning and construction planning.

Phu Quoc Island’s master plan was approved in May 2010 and was adjusted once, in June 2016.

The plan targeted promoting sustainable development, culture, environment protection and security and harmonising economic growth with the preservation of historical monuments.

Phu Quoc will be developed into a hub for high-quality services and a centre for science and technology in Southeast Asia, with an international airport and seaport system connecting it with other destinations in the region.

Phu Quoc was among three localities, besides Bac Van Phong in central Khanh Hoa Province and Van Don in northern Quang Ninh Province, planned for development into a special administrative-economic unit. — VNS
