ĐỒNG THÁP — NovaGroup on Wednesday signed a memorandum of understanding with Cambodia’s Sokimex Investment Group to develop the Blue Dragon project, an urban area that covers 115ha in Hồng Ngự District of the Mekong Delta province of Đồng Tháp.
According to the agreement, Sokimex Investment Group and NovaGroup will contribute capital and will co-operate in implementing and completing the necessary procedures in accordance with the Vietnamese and Cambodian laws to conduct an auction of land use rights to develop the project.
The Blue Dragon project is expected to complete legal requirements in the first quarter of 2023 and start construction in the second quarter of 2023.
In addition, NovaGroup will give consultancy to develop the 5,000-ha BoKor City in Kampot Province of Cambodia. Bokor City is invested by Sokha Hotel.Co Ltd, a member company of Sokimex.
