NDO/VNA - Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung has approved a feasibility report on the project of land clearance, compensation and resettlement support related to the construction of Long Thanh International Airport in the southern province of Dong Nai.

The project aims to recover land, award compensation and resettlement support to locals living in the area, making it easy for the investor to complete the project on schedule.

It will focus on vocational training and generating jobs for locals, and adjusting the administrative boundaries of communes within the project area.

The project is invested in by the People’s Committee of Dong Nai province with a total cost of over VND 22.85 trillion (over US$ 978.7 million) sourced from the State budget.

Of the amount, VND 4.1 trillion will be invested in infrastructure development in resettlement areas, VND 479 billion for building infrastructure facilities outside the airport, over VND 17.8 trillion for support in resettlements, VND 306 billion for vocational training and job generation and VND 27 billion for building a feasible report of the project.
