BÌNH ĐỊNH — FLC Group has invested around VNĐ7 trillion (US$308.4 million) in central Bình Định Province, and its investment could touch VNĐ30 trillion ($1.33 billion) in the future, FLC’s vice-chairwoman Hương Trần Kiều Dung said.
The group and the province’s leaders have had discussions and agreed on investing in the 800-hectare Nhơn Hội Urban Area. It will fulfil the criteria of a developed urban area and transform Quy Nhơn University into an international university.
The group will co-operate with the Government to upgrade and expand the road from Phù Cát Airport to Nhơn Hội Economic Zone so as to shorten the distance from the current one hour to 15 minutes.
In addition, FLC will work together with concerned agencies to operate direct flights connecting Quy Nhơn City and Thanh Hóa Province in July, and later Quy Nhơn City to South Korea and China. The routes will help meet tourism demands and encourage investment in the southern province.
In the first phase, the group has invested VNĐ3.5 trillion in the 200-hectare FLC Quy Nhơn resort complex, two 36-hole golf courses, and a 500-hectare safari.
It has poured VNĐ1.8 trillion into FLC Sea Tower, a commercial centre and five-star hotel complex. The complex is expected to become operational by the end of 2017. The second phase of investment included the Eo Gió Nhơn Lý Tourism Area. The group’s total investment for the two phase was around VNĐ7 trillion.
The development of FLC resort complexes has not only brought more tourists to the province, it has also created 1,500 to 2,000 jobs, which reaches 3,000 during peak season. — VNS
