Accordingly, the Mong Cai Border Gate Economic Zone includes 17 communes and wards of Mong Cai city and Quang Ha town, along with Quang Minh, Quang Thanh, Cai Chien, and Quang Phong communes of Hai Ha district.

By 2030, the zone will have a population of 310,000-320,000 people, including 210,000-215,000 people in Mong Cai city and 100,000-105,000 in Hai Ha district, and attract 5-6 million tourists. The respective figures are set to reach 460,000 – 470,000 (including 310,000-320,000 in Mong Cai city and about 150,000 in Hai Ha district) and 8-9 million by 2040.

It will be built into a national key border gate economic zone as well as an important economic development centre of the northern region, the northern coastal economic belt, and the Kunming (China) – Hanoi – Hai Phong – Mong Cai – Fangcheng (China) economic corridor.

The planning scheme looks to turn this zone into a centre of cross-border trade, industry, seaport, logistics, and general services of Quang Ninh province and the northern key economic region; a national tourism site; a modern and sustainable coastal city; and a zone holding special importance in terms of national defence and security./.
