HCMC – The Phu Tho circus and multi-purpose performing center project in HCMC’s District 11 will get off the ground by the end of 2022, according to the city’s Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
The 2,000-seat center was approved by the municipal government in late October 2019, with a total area of 10,000 square meters and a total cost of nearly VND1.4 trillion backed by the city’s 2021-2025 medium public investment fund.
This is reportedly one of the national-level and modern projects in the southern city, reported the local media.
The project will provide a platform for circus and puppetry performances, preservation and development; for training purposes and other arts.
In related news, the department has coordinated with relevant agencies to study and implement the Phan Dinh Phung Sports Center project in the city. The project’s architectural design and bidding process to select an investor have been completed.
