VTV.vn - Phu Quoc Island in Kien Giang province was set to become a tourism destination and a special economic zone under the determination of the Vietnamese Government.

However, until now, Phu Quoc still lacks a master plan to become a real special economic zone. According to experts in the construction sector, Phu Quoc is developing under the influence of urbanization rather than a development to become a special economic zone.

The island hasn't come up with a special policy to attract major investors. Currently, the cost of access and investment is high.

Therefore, it is crucial to come up with a master plan for the island to help it live up to its full potential. Last year, Phu Quoc welcomed more than 1.45 million of visitors, an increase of 63% compared to 2015.
