HCMC – FECON Corporation, whose FCN shares are traded on the Hochiminh Stock Exchange, has announced that it has been chosen as the investor of two property projects in the northern provinces of Bac Giang and Thai Nguyen, with a total investment of over VND3.2 trillion.
The People’s Committee of Thai Nguyen Province on January 27 announced that FECON Pho Yen JSC, a subsidiary of FECON Corporation, had been named the investor of the Nam Thai urban project covering nearly 25 hectares in the province’s Pho Yen City.
The urban project, commercially known as the Square City project, will require VND2.25 trillion in investment funded by FECON Pho Yen Company and other legal sources. The project is slated for completion in 2026 and will be operational for 50 years.
The provincial government asked the investor to allocate resources and closely coordinate with the relevant units to complete legal procedures to start work on the project as planned.
On December 26 last year, the government of Bac Giang Province issued a decision establishing the 75-hectare Danh Thang-Doan Bai industrial cluster in the province’s Hiep Hoa District. According to the decision, FECON Hiep Hoa JSC, another business arm of FECON Corporation, was named the project developer.
The industrial cluster will cost nearly VND1 trillion funded by FECON Hiep Hoa Company and other legal sources. The investor was told to map out a plan to begin work on the project this year and put it into operation in the third quarter of 2024.
