Previously, CAAV had said that the proposed new route required a more thorough review beyond cost effectiveness, in response to a seminar on the issue.

VEA Chairman Prof. Tran Phuong said CAAV has sent two representatives to work on the project with VEA, which is a member of the Vietnam Union of Scientific and Technological Associations (VUSTA). 

Prof. Phuong stressed that his association will play only an intermediary role and hold several discussions in which CAAV members can express their opinions.

Scientists will also be invited to take part and the results will be published in the media, he added.

The aim of the discussions is for experts to analyze the project in relation to the country’s socio-economic growth and publicize the information. CAAV is also encouraged to participate, VEA said.

Following the series of discussions, VEA aims to submit an official document to the Government detailing its findings.
