CẦN THƠ — The southern city of Cần Thơ’s leaders held a meeting on Tuesday with An Tín Group for a “smart city” in Võ Văn Kiệt Street with investment of VNĐ15 trillion (US$663.7 million).
Nguyễn Đức Thọ, An Tín Group’s chairman, said they planned to build the smart city with total area of 300ha, of which, a half would be used for residential areas, 25 per cent for commercial centres and the rest for offices for rent.
Thọ said architects from Singapore would design the city to fully make use of natural resources with an aim to effectively manage energies, reducing pollution and improving the quality of life for people.
Vice chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Trương Quang Hoài Nam asked their Centre for Trade Promotion and Exhibition to be in charge of all procedures for the construction. The city would create favourable conditions for the group to implement the project. — VNS
