HCMC – Dong Nai Province must hand over the cleared land for the first phase of the Long Thanh International Airport project to its investor in October this year, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc told a working team during his working trip to the Loc An-Binh Son resettlement area project on July 21.
As this is a key national-level project, the prime minister asked the relevant ministries and agencies to support the province in executing the project.
Dong Nai chairman Cao Tien Dung said that among 1,810 hectares of land for the first phase of the big-ticket airport project, 1,180 hectares under the management of Dong Nai Rubber Corporation is being cleared. Site clearance is slated for completion by October.
The remaining 630 hectares of land belonging to 1,007 households will soon be recalled as the compensation plan for 269 of the affected households has been approved, while 212 other households have been given a total of VND358.6 billion in compensation.
Some 640 households will receive compensation in July, while the documents of 98 others owning some 90 hectares of land are being checked and verified, Thanh Nien Online reported.
Dong Nai will complete all procedures to hand over land for the first phase to the Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV), the investor of the airport project, this year, Dung said.
As for the 3,190 hectares of land for the second phase of the project, which is set to cover 5,000 hectares of land, Dung said the province is speeding up the site clearance process to hand over land to ACV in 2021.
At the working session, an ACV representative told the prime minister that the firm would begin work on the project as soon as the cleared site is handed over.
The prime minister also asked ACV to quickly complete the feasibility study report for the project to submit it to the State appraisal council for approval.
Residents in the country are looking forward to seeing the international airport be put into operation, so the design process should be done concurrently with the site clearance and preparation processes, stated PM Phuc.
Speaking at the working session, Dung said that among over VND18 trillion allocated to the project by the Government, the province disbursed some VND690 billion during the first half of the year, taking the total amount of disbursed capital from 2018 to late June to over VND1.8 trillion, meeting 10% of the target. The rest of the capital will be completely disbursed this year.
