HÀ NỘI — The southern province of Đồng Nai has paid more than VNĐ5 trillion (US$217.12 million) as ground clearance compensation and resettlement support to 2,200 households affected by the construction of Long Thành International Airport project.
The ground clearance for the project has been conducted quickly thanks to the high consensus of locals, said Lê Văn Tiệp, Vice Chairman of the People’s Committee of Long Thành District.
Đồng Nai plans to basically complete the compensation and support for affected people and hand over land to the investor, the Airports Corporation of Viet Nam (ACV), in March 2021.
The project site has more than 4,300 households who have been arranged to resettle in Long An-Bình Sơn area. So far, more than 200 households have received resettlement land to build houses.
The construction of Long Thành International Airport started on January 5 and its first phase scheduled to finish in 2025. About 5,000 hectares of land have been reclaimed, including more than 3,000 hectares belonging to more than 5,000 households. — VNS
