During his field trip, Dung visited families involved with the project and offered gifts to kindergarten students in Long Thanh district’s Suoi Trau Commune.

The deputy chairman of the Dong Nai People’s Committee, Tran Van Vinh, said that the province was ready to implement the project, but was still waiting for the prime ministerial approval.

He urged the State Appraisal Council to quickly evaluate the feasibility of the project and submit it to the Prime Minister for approval.

The province has received VND4.5 trillion ($197 million) and plans to allocate a specific amount of capital resources, he said.

If the project is approved within the next month, the provincial people’s committee would have 30 months to complete land acquisition of 5,399.35ha and resettle 4,486 households.

The province plans to provide residents whose agricultural land is displaced by the airport project four to five times their monthly minimum salary at the time of land acquisition.

Quality transport infrastructure connecting Long Thanh International Airport to other areas should be emphasised, he said, particularly the expansion of Ho Chi Minh City – Long Thanh – Dau Giay Expressway and construction of Bien Hoa – Vung Tau Expressway.

Dung ordered further coordination between the Dong Nai People’s Committee and relevant authorities to complete necessary project documents and prepare for implementation.
