HẠ LONG — The FLC Group, on Sunday, officially began construction of the FLC Hạ Long resort complex in the northern Quảng Ninh Province’s Hạ Long City.
Encompassing an area of 224 hectares (ha), the VNĐ3.4 trillion (US$151 million) project would have an 18-hole golf course, an international convention centre, a five star hotel and a high-end resort.
The golf course is expected to become operational by the end of this year while the entire complex is scheduled to be completed in 2017.
Speaking at the ground-breaking ceremony, Hương Trần Kiều Dung, FLC’s general director, said the group implemented several largescale projects nationwide in 2015.
“The FLC Group will mobilise all of its sources to implement the project. The design and planning of the project have been completed, while the first golf holes have been established to ensure the target of launching the golf course by the end of this year,” Dung said.
The complex is expected to add diversity to the province’s tourism sector, attracting more tourists as well as creating jobs for local people.
Nguyễn Đức Long, deputy secretary and chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, said they highly valued the professionalism of the group. The golf course would have a favourable location with the direct view to Hạ Long Bay.
“In addition, we expect the investor to ensure the environment surrounding the project. We have considered the complex as one of our key projects,” Long said.
On March 6th, FLC Vĩnh Thịnh’s Phase 1 was also inaugurated in the northern Vĩnh Phúc Province. Phase two with an area of 250ha and VNĐ5 trillion investment also began construction on the same day. The FLC Quy Nhơn would be inaugurated in the next six months. The FLC Group planned to start construction of a complex in central Quảng Binh Province in the near future.
