Tam Ky is the capital. During the Vietnam War, it was in I Corps tactical zone.

It is on National Highways 1 and 14, as well as being on the national railroad system. Its economic development has been slowed due, in part, to limited sea and air transportationl; it has a limited facility at Chu Lai but primarily depends on Danang facilities. It does have two hydroelectric plants under construction, scheduled for completion in 2011, and has a number of industrial parks along Highway 1. At the present, commercial fishing forms a large part of its economy, and it is participating in fisheries monitoring surveillance and control planning.[1]
