|The Vietnamese Ethnic Minorities' Cultural Park in District 9.|
The People’s Committee of Ho Chi Minh City and the Vietnam Union of Science and Technology Associations held a seminar today to discuss their plans for building a natural history museum in the city starting next year.
The museum and grounds will take up 30 hectares of the Vietnamese Ethnic Minorities’ Cultural Park in District 9 and house more than five million objects and documents displayed over 9,000 square meters.
Nearly US$50 million will be needed for the 2007-2013 first stage, which will be 80% funded by international organizations and 20% by the city.
Compensating and relocating the affected households in the area zoned for the park should be finished by the end of December.
