Thai Binh Economic Zone Masterplan, Vietnam

The Thai Binh Economic Zone extends along the Vietnam coast for a distance of some 45 km. Part of the Red River Delta, it is a fertile agricultural area, rich with aquaculture. Extensive rehabilitation of mangrove forests is already underway.

Hansen Partnership are working with the VIUP team to develop the Thai Binh Economic Zone Masterplan, the newly designated Thai Binh Economic Zone. We are jointly working to develop concepts, survey the site area and consult local officials.

The plan will require a sensitive balance between economic development initiatives, port development, investment and job creation, with the protection and rehabilitation of mangrove forests, sensitive land reclamation and working with local communities. Key issues will revolve around competitive economic advantage, lifestyle, ecologically sustainable development, climate change and sea level rise.
