Vietnam Initiative – enCity Consortium to develop Binh Phuoc Provincial Master Plan 2021 – 2030, vision for 2050

01.2021 Dong Xoai City: The province of Binh Phuoc is entering a time of transformation, as the province takes the next step towards its goal of becoming an attractive regional destination by 2050. Situated north of Ho Chi Minh City in southern Vietnam, its vast land area and proximity to Vietnam’s largest economic hub promise a high development potential in this mainly rural province. By optimising the province’s assets and creating a business-friendly environment, the provincial leaders aim to attract investment and growth to make Binh Phuoc a new destination.

To realise this vision, enCity has formed a Consortium with the Vietnam Initiative, a global think tank, to develop a strategic economic vision around three criteria: Thriving, Inclusivity and Sustainability. This partnership will build a team with both local knowledge and global expertise to conduct a comprehensive provincial plan, which will provide a framework for short- and long-term social and economic development of the province.

On 11th January 2021, the signing ceremony between the Consortium and Binh Phuoc Department of Planning and Investment for development of the provincial plan was held at the Binh Phuoc People’s Committee Headquarter and chaired by highest-ranking provincial leaders including: Mr. Nguyen Van Loi – Provincial Party Secretary, Ms. Tran Tue Hien – Chairwoman of Provincial People’s Committee and Head of the Steering Committee, and Mr. Le Hoang Lam – Vice Chairman of Provincial People’s Council. Mr. Nguyen Van Loi gave an address, highlighting that the Binh Phuoc Provincial Plan would serve as the navigator for a thriving Binh Phuoc in the coming years, and asked all relevant stakeholders to proactively approach and collaborate with the Consortium to realize this shared vision.
