At Vinh international airport, the Government leader agreed with the proposal of the provincial People’s Committee to increase the annual capacity of the airport from eight million to around 12 million passengers by 2030, and from some 14 million to 15 million passengers by 2050.
He tasked the Ministry of Transport with the expansion and upgrading of the airport, suggesting investment under the public-private partnership (PPP) model.
Visiting Cua Lo deepwater port, PM Chinh said the port plays an important role to local industrial development, noting that the port, together with airport, expressway and railway, will help to spur socio-economic development in Nghe An.
The construction of the deepwater port should be completed within this tenure, he requested.
The PM also visited a coastal route project running through five localities of Nghe An with a total length of nearly 80km and total investment of 198 million USD.
Mr. Chinh also made a fact-finding trip to the Ban Mong Irrigation Reservoir project, the biggest of its kind in the province.
