Vietnam’s group builds urban area for Laos

November 15, 2010

Vietnamese corporation Ha Do conducted a groundbreaking ceremony for the new urban area named Nongtha in Chantabuly district of the Lao capital city of Vientiane on November 15.

The US$250-million project, designed by Singaporean company Surbana, consists of a modern ecological urban area with schools, trade centres, offices, housing and works to celebrate major events in Vientiane as well as in Laos.

This area is expected to provide many jobs for local people and change the face of northern Vientiane, thereby strengthening special ties between the two countries.

At the ceremony, Secretary of the Vientiane Party Committee Sombath Yialiher thanked the Vietnamese Party and Government as well as the Ha Do group for assisting Laos with this important project, which he said bears great socio-economic significance.
