The ACV has proposed leaders of the southern province of Dong Nai to continue keeping watch of the ground during the execution of the project.  

Addressing the meeting, Deputy Minister of Transport Le Anh Tuan said that the Long Thanh airport is a breakthrough project of the transport industry in the 2021-25 period. Therefore, the related sides should ensure the disbursement progress of the project.

He required to draw up appropriate compensation, support and resettlement policies. “The building of airport fence should avoid flooding and blocking roads,” Tuan said.

Cao Tien Dung, Chairman of Dong Nai Provincial People's Committee, said the province is carrying out site clearance and it is expected that the entire 5,000ha area will be handed over to the investor in June. Dong Nai is mapping out resettlement scheme to move people out of the project area.

In January, the construction of the first phase of the Long Thanh Airport was kicked off, with an estimated investment of more than VND109 trillion (US$4.6 billion). 

The 5,500-ha airport will be built in three phases and is expected to have four runways and four passenger terminals to ensure a capacity of 100 million passengers and five million tons of cargo per year by 2040. Once fully operational, it will become a major international aviation hub in the region.
