Previously, on July 7, 2017, DEG and two members of Nova Group – Anova Corporation and Novaland Group – signed a memorandum of understanding within the framework of the Vietnam-Germany Business Forum, a trade promotion activity on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Berlin, Germany.

This is the beginning of a long-term co-operation between the two large corporations, aiming to improve the quality of life in Vietnam on the basis of sustainable development and compliance with international standards on corporate governance, social responsibility, and environmental protection.

In the Mekong Delta, Novaland and Military Bank have jointly contributed funds for the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) – a leading global consulting firm – to develop a tourism development strategy for the 13 provinces in the region to adapt to climate change in accordance with the prime minister’s Resolution No.120/NQ-CP.

Accordingly, by 2030, the Mekong Delta will be the top river destination in Asia, creating 300,000 new jobs.

Based on BCG's strategy, Novaland is planning and implementing the NovaWorld Mekong project in the centre of Can Tho city.

This is a large-scale synchronous project of international standards that will change the perception of tourism in the Mekong Delta, boosting tourism combined with agriculture and traditional activities, making the Mekong a tourism destination of the world.

Phase 1 of NovaWorld Mekong – the Azerai Can Tho Resort – has been completed and put into operation in June 2018.
