Bookmark and Share

The Hai Phong municipal People’s Committee has held a ceremony to launch construction on the Cat Bi International Airport upgrade project in the presence of Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung.
The upgrade of the airport aims to meet the northern port city and neighbouring areas’ aviation demands.
The project has total investment capital exceeding VND3,600 billion and is scheduled for completion by 2015. The upgrade will allow the facility to meet the 4E level international airport standards, authorising it to receive aircraft models like the Airbus 321 and Boeing’s 777, 747, and 767.
The airport also serves as a standby for Noi Bai International Airport. By 2015, it is expected to welcome 2 million passengers and 20,000 tonnes of cargo each year.
Addressing the ceremony, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung highlighted the successful co-ordination between the city, relevant ministries, and contractors that meant all planning challenges were overcome.
The PM said that Hai Phong’s future plans include beginning construction on Lach Huyen Port and Tan Vu-Cat Hai Bridge. By early 2015, the city will complete work on the Hanoi-Hai Phong highway.
In addition, the Government will mobilize capital for the start of Hai Phong-Quang Ninh highway project. These important infrastructure works affirm the crucial role Cat Bi International Airport plays in the country’s socio-economic development, its security and national defence, and its modernisation and industrialisation.
The PM asked the municipal People’s Committee to introduce regulations governing construction investment and, fulfill the tasks and goals previously approved by the PM. Contractors and consultants are also urged to honour their commitments to guarantee the important infrastructure will be completed on schedule.
