VSIP Hai Duong Co., Ltd. (VSIP Hai Duong) has kicked off the construction of Cam Dien-Luong Dien industrial park (IP) in Cam Giang district by starting to construct the technical infrastructure.
Accordingly, the investor mobilised over 100 trucks to transport construction materials and 20 excavators to start to leveling the ground. At the same time the construction of a fence surrounding the construction site was also started, which is expected to be completed within a week.
Previously, the project’s construction faced protests from local residents who refused to receive site clearance compensation as well as relocate to new locations.
However, on March 31, Deputy Chairman of the Hai Duong People’s Committee Vuong Duc Sang committed that the province would try its best to hand over land and enable VSIP Hai Duong to start the construction of Cam Dien-Luong Dien IP in April. Sang added that if some households continued to refuse to relocate, the committee would use coercive measures.
The plan for Cam Dien-Luong Dien IP in Hai Duong was ratified by Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung in 2008, committing an area of 205.28 hectares to the investor Phuc Hung Ltd. In 2009 and 2010 Phuc Hung started construction of the infrastructure but was stopped by local households.
In 2014, the prime minister allowed the province to transfer the project to Vietnam SingaporeIndustrial Park and Township Development Joint Stock Company (VSIP JSC). In April 2015 Phuc Hung finished the transfer to VSIP Hai Duong, a subsidiary of VSIP JSC.
VSIP Hai Duong then submitted plans to carry out the first phase of the project on an area of 150 hectares, which were ratified by the Hai Duong People’s Committee in October 2015.
