Under the plan, special-use forest will be expanded from the current 2.2 million hectares to 2.4 million by 2020, in line with the strategy on management of special-use forest and sea and inland water reserves adopted in February. The 2.4 million ha will cover 34 national parks, 58 nature reserves and numerous landscapes and research areas.

The northwest region will have 222,000ha of special-use forest, including a new 17,000ha nature reserve at Muong La, while 400,000ha will be zoned off in the northeast region, covering well-known landscapes such as Ha Long Bay, Tam Dao mountain area, Ba Be Lake and Hoang Lien Son mountain range.
