HANOI – The northern province of Ha Nam has received the central Government’s green light for a proposal to build a hi-tech park.
The Government Office said that Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam signed Decision No. 2098 yesterday, December 14, adding the Ha Nam hi-tech park to the country’s master zoning plan for hi-tech park development until 2020 with a vision toward 2030.
The deputy PM asked the provincial government to coordinate with the relevant ministries and agencies to draw up a plan to develop the Ha Nam Hi-tech Park project in line with the prevailing regulations, and send the plan to the Ministry of Science and Technology for appraisal and then to the prime minister for consideration and approval.
In a related development, at a conference on the zoning and development of industrial zones and hi-tech parks held by Ha Nam in mid-2021, the provincial government had proposed developing 18 more industrial and hi-tech parks in the province until 2025. These facilities would have a total area of 7,334 hectares, up 4,800 hectares against the 2020 figures.
By the middle of 2021, Ha Nam had received the prime minister’s nod to develop eight industrial zones. To date, seven of the eight facilities are operational, with an occupancy rate of over 72%.
In Vietnam, Hanoi, HCMC, and Danang are currently operating and developing hi-tech parks.
