THAI NGUYEN (VNS) — The northern province of Thai Nguyen and Xuan Truong Construction Company today started work on the Nui Coc Lake tourism site.
The VND15 trillion (US$6.6 million) project is located in Dai Tu District's Van Tho Commune.
The construction plan includes a pagoda, temples, service areas, a hotel, a golf court, a boat wharf, and ethnic village areas.
At the groundbreaking ceremony, General Tran Dai Quang, a member of the Political Bureau and Minister of Public Security, said the construction of the Nui Coc Lake tourism area, along with other tourism sites, would promote the country and attract more domestic and foreign tourists, contributing to the development of Viet Nam's tourism industry.
The province should work closely with the contractor on land clearance and other parts of the project, he said.
The relevant ministries and sectors should also create advantages for the contractor to ensure construction progresses at a high standard of quality, the general said.
The first phase of the project will be completed in four years and will welcome tourists by the end of 2019. — VNS
