HANOI – Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh has ordered the Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV) to quickly establish a management board for the Long Thanh international airport project and report it to the prime minister before February 18.
In an announcement released by the Government Office on February 14 on the conclusions of the deputy prime minister on the establishment of the steering committee for the big-ticket airport project, Thanh said the management board should have strong manpower and legal status.
It is necessary to establish the management board as ACV was tasked with investing in the Subproject 3 project, which is the most important part of the airport project and composes multiple key components of the airport.
The management board will be authorized to hire consultants on monitoring and appraising the project and highly-skilled experts to ensure the project’s progress and quality of work, according to the deputy prime minister.
Speaking of the design and appraisal aspects, the deputy prime minister asked ACV to submit a report on the design of a passenger terminal to the Ministries of Transport and Construction before February 18 to get their feedback.
As for the establishment of the steering committee for the airport project, the Ministry of Transport was told to collect feedback from other ministries and complete the prime minister’s draft decision on the establishment of the committee and its working principles.
The steering committee will be in charge of removing obstacles facing the Long Thanh international airport project to complete the project in 2025.
In addition, Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh also signed a decision to set up an appraisal council led by the Minister of Planning and Investment to appraise and adjust the feasibility study report for the land reclamation, compensation and resettlement project.
