In October, Phu Yen People’s Committee issued a decision to approve the 1/2,000 scale construction planning of the coastal service urban area in South Phu Yen EZ. Covering a total area of 284.3 hectares, the area is expected to house a population of 19,890 people.
The decision assigns Phu Yen Economic Zones Management Authority to be in charge of the planning. The move is part of the efforts to realise the 1/10,000 scale general planning of the construction of South Phu Yen EZ by 2025, which has been approved by the prime minister.
The project will combine an urban service area and a green area of coastal plants, in line with the general planning of the EZ. The project aims to maximise the efficiency of land use in the planned area.
