According to the project’s investor Dai Quang Minh Company, 65 percent of work on four main roads in the new urban area has been built. They broke ground on February 2014.

Construction has been hindered with site clearance over 1.8 hectares of 13 households in four wards and two religious establishments who have refused to hand over their land. However, removal of power and water infrastructure system has been slow.

Chairman Nguyen Thanh Phong asked construction units to debate solutions to speed up the project’s progress.
