Investor told to clarify pros and cons in sea tourism project

Van Nam

HCMC – The HCMC government has asked Can Gio Tourist City Corporation to clarify advantages and disadvantages of its sea tourism and residential project covering around 1,875 hectares in the outlying district of Can Gio.

The municipal government told the company to analyze all the factors that will greatly affect the general master plan of Can Gio District, especially issues relevant to the development of social and technical infrastructure.

In particular, the construction of a bridge that replaces the existing Binh Khanh ferry terminal, and the building of an elevated road connecting the bridge and the forthcoming sea tourism area should not affect the Can Gio Mangrove Biosphere Reserve.

Notably, the project will not include the expansion of the Rung Sac Road as earlier planned. The elevated road will shorten the traveling time between the city center and Can Gio. Besides, it will prevent speculation on land along Rung Sac Road.

The city government came up with a major plan to develop a sea urban area around 15 years ago. The project worth around VND8.47 trillion (US$373.4 million) has been delayed since it got off the ground in late 2007.

Can Gio has over 70,000 hectares of mangrove forest, water coconut and canal. It is regarded as the green lung of HCMC, with half of its area recognized in 2000 by UNESCO as a biosphere reserve thanks to the diversity of flora and fauna.
