Initial Evaluation Of Challenges To Policy On Sustainable Development Of The Southern Key Economic Zone
NGUYỄN TIẾN DŨNG & NGUYỄN TẤN PHÁT
In the modern economic structure, key economic zones (KEZ) with characteristics close to local advantages can increase investment and economic growth when socioeconomic development policies are carried out. Southern Key Economic Zone (SKEZ) comprising eight provinces and cities is the Vietnam's biggest dynamic economic region. Its sustainable development requires policies and mechanisms to deal with common problems such as environment, water resources, transportation infrastructure, urbanization, and foreign direct investment, etc. Realities in recent years show that, in spite of mechanisms and policies for KEZs in general and for SKEZ in particular, the development is spontaneous rather than cooperative. The objective of this paper is to assess initially challenges affecting the sustainable development of SKEZ, with reasons explored from aspects of limitations of coordinating mechanisms and policies.
