Vision

The Expansion Area will be the driving force for the development of the Mong Cai Border Economic Zone, supporting the growth of Mong Cai City and attracting investments in industry, logistics, cross-border trading and tourism.

Summary of enCity Solutions

The proposed strategy is based on creating a thriving urban-industrial ecosystem that anchors on creative and high-tech industries to attract investments into the city, and supported by eco-communities that offer diverse housing options, attractive amenities and connection to nature.

The project’s six key development principles include: 

  1. Enhance connectivity through transportation nodes, creating a strong foundation for development and segregation between urban & industrial activities
  2. Develop urban growth areas along the East-West corridor to maximize access to regional transportation infrastructure, employment opportunities & views of the coastline
  3. Link urban centres into an integrated ecosystem through a comprehensive public transport network
  4. Preserve existing natural assets, including rivers and drainage channels, to ensure environmental sustainability and enable high quality of living
  5. Locate industries strategically around the perimeter of urban development and along main transport axes to create accessibility to regional infrastructure
  6. Invest in efficient and sustainable public infrastructure to drive economic development

Projected to house 500,000 people, the Expansion Area features transit-oriented development (TOD) nodes that provide diverse urban functions to create accessible and walkable environments for its residents and workers. By clustering development, more area is preserved and expanded for existing ecological zones, which act as urban green catalysts, reduce the environmental impacts of the port and aid in mitigating climate risks to the new urban area. 

Industrial parks are integrated surrounding the urban development to attract higher value manufacturing, reduce commuting time for workers, and enable construction phasing flexibility. Utilising clean and renewable energy and resources, public works infrastructure for water and energy are centralised to optimise land use. Moreover, mixed-use and service clusters support industries to create a vibrant and bustling economic hub.
