Vietnam’s Long An Province Cancels Industrial Zone Investments
Oct. 13 – Vietnam’s province of Long An has postponed investments in some of its industrial zones due to concerns on land use.
The province’s Natural Resources and Environment Department Director Nguyen Van Thiep told Thanh Nien News that the province will only build one 300-hectare golf course in Duc Hoa District instead of the planned 13 golf courses.
The land previously allocated for the golf courses will be used to build housing for industrial zone workers and residents. Long An’s working group is also recommending that 19 projects be revoked because of suspicions that its current investors are land speculators.
