BÀ RỊA - VŨNG TÀU — Authorities in the southern coastal province of Bà Rịa – Vũng Tàu are working with local departments to speed up implementation of 34 key projects.
Of the projects, 16 are public-invested and 18 are seeking funds from private sources and others, according to a report from the provincial People’s Committee.
The projects include ports, cultural parks, airports, roads, inspection centres, tourism services, and urban area works.
Speaking at a meeting on Monday, Lê Tuấn Quốc, deputy chairman of the People’s Committee, said: "Land clearance should be completed so that projects can maintain their schedules."
The Department of Planning and Investment and other authorities will also resolve problems for investors, who have been urged to speed up their work.
For projects not under the province's jurisdiction, the province will ask for guidance from ministries, he said.
The public-invested projects include Phước An Bridge, a road connecting Long Sơn and Cái Mép, the 991B Road, the dredging of Bến Đình canal, Biên Hòa - Đồng Nai Expressway, Cỏ Ống Airport in Côn Đảo Island District, Gò Găng Airport, a specialised inspection centre in Cái Mép - Thị Vải port, Bàu Sen Park, Bàu Trũng Cultural Park, Lam Sơn shooting range in Phú Mỹ town, and many others.
The investors of these projects include the province’s Department of Transportation, Department of Construction, Department of Natural Resources and Environment, and the people's committees of Long Điền District and Vũng Tàu city.
Other projects include urban development and housing, land projects in Safari Park and Vũng Tàu Paradise Tourism Complex, Sài Gòn Atlantis Resort and Recreation Complex, Nghinh Phong Cape, An Hải project in Côn Đảo, and a specialised airport.
Some of these are expected to start construction this year to 2021, while others have received capital, made detailed plans and called for investment.
Lê Hoàng Hải, director of the Department of Planning and Investment, said that some investors were interested in Dinh Moutain, Biên Hòa–Vũng Tàu Expressway, Bà Rịa City’s southwest region, land at Safari Park, electrification projects, and the Cái Mép Hạ logistics centre.
However, difficulties in land clearance and lack of capital have been obstacles for these projects, he said. — VNS
