Delayed infrastructure project at Hoa Lac Hi-Tech Park to start on June 26 and be completed by 2018.
The Hoa Lac High-Tech Park Infrastructure Development Project (HHTPIDP) will officially get underway on June 26, according to Mr. Pham Dai Duong, Head of the Management Board of Hoa Lac Hi-Tech Park (HHTP).
The project includes five main packages: CP-1A (developing key infrastructure facilities such as roads, bridges, telecommunications, water supply, and drainage, among others), CP-1B (renovating Tan Xa Lake and protecting Dua Gai Stream), CP-2 (developing wastewater treatment plants), CP-3 (developing power stations), and ES-II (supervision and consulting).
Under the original plan the project was to begin construction in 2013 and be completed in 2016. “There were obstacles in site clearance so the Management Board suggested to the Ministry of Science and Technology and the government that implementation be postponed,” Mr. Duong said.
HHTPIDP, which was approved in 2010, uses Japanese ODA and domestic funds and is now expected to be completed by the end of 2018, in preparation for the development of projects at HHTP.
Set on 1,586 ha in Hanoi’s Thach That district, HHTP will be a science city with various functional zones, such as a Research and Development Zone, a Software Park, a Hi-Tech Industrial Zone, and an Education and Training Zone, among others. About 70 projects have already been granted investment certificates to operate at the Park, including the Viettel High Technology Center, FPT University, and the Hoa Lac Technical Center of Nissan Techno Vietnam.
