ĐỒNG NAI – Most owners of land to be acquired for Long Thành Airport in Đồng Nai Province, 40km away from HCM City, want the airport to be completed at the earliest so that they can move out soon to new residential areas earmarked for them.

In the first stage, 2,557ha of land in Bình Sơn, Long An, Suối Trầu, and Cẩm Đường will be taken over, affecting over 1,800 households in these communes, including 1,000 households having to move from their homes. Total compensation of over VNĐ5 trillion will be paid.
Over 2,442ha will be acquired in the second stage, affecting 2,922 families, of whom over 2,500 have to move out. Compensation of over VNĐ8 trillion will be paid.
