THUA THIEN HUE – Aeon, a Japanese-based retailer, and Vietravel, a local tourism company, are building commercial and service centers in the central province of Thua Thien Hue.
Aeon Vietnam Co., the investor of the Aeon Mall chain in Vietnam, plans to pour US$150-160 million into a large-scale shopping mall in Hue City, Thua Thien Hue Province.
This was unveiled at the signing ceremony of a memorandum of understanding about the investment research of Aeon Mall in Hue City between the Thua Thien Hue People’s Committee and Aeon Mall Vietnam.
Phan Ngoc Tho, Chairman of Thua Thien Hue Provincial People’s Committee, said the province will strongly support the investor to do studies as well as procedures so that the latter could commence the project this year.
Tho also said apart from the commercial center, the investor was also interested in developing local raw material areas.
Meanwhile, Vietravel is building the Vietravel entertainment and service complex in Hue City. The VND140-billion project will provide a chain of travel services and auxiliary services when it comes into operation by the end of 2021.
In another development, Hue is calling for investment in a complex of hotel, commercial center, floating restaurant and tourist wharf at 121 Nguyen Sinh Cung Street, Hue City with an aim to attract tourists to visit the famous Huong River.
Late last year, the People’s Council of Thua Thien Hue Province approved the socio-economic development plan for 2021, including a list of key projects in 2021.
Some major projects will be kicked off in 2021 such as the international golf project plus the auxiliary service area and resort by BRG Golf Course Joint Stock Company with a total investment capital of VND3,164 and VND1,656-billion Vinh My tourist service area by Heritage Vietnam Real Estate Co.
