State President Nguyen Minh Triet visited the Phu An urban area in Cai Rang District, Can Tho City on Feb. 13.
Work on the 145-hectare urban area started five years ago. Phu An will include a residential quarter, villas, hospitals, schools, supermarkets, and offices of State agencies.
More than 2,000 apartments have been built so far and handed over to local residents, including 1,000 apartments for resettlement.
This year, the main investor – Transport and Construction Company No 586 – plans to build 500 apartments and an adjacent 180-hectare urban area.
Addressing a meeting held during his visit, President Triet highlighted the company’s efforts in building the Phu An urban area, which is located by the Hau River.
