Kien Giang (VNA) – Construction of a 40,000-m2 service-entertainment complex in the Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang’s Rach Gia City started on March 18.

Built at a cost of more than 300 billion VND (13.16 million USD), the complex at Phu Cuong Group’s high-end urban area comprises 12 facilities, including a water park, a marina, a helipad, and a 6,000 sq.m sea-view square, along with tennis courts, pools, and an entertainment park.

It is scheduled to be operational after three years of construction.

The complex is located on the 30-ha Phu Gia artificial island, a sea-encroaching project.

According to Director General of Phu Cuong Group Huynh Ha Phuong, the urban area is the largest of its kind in the Mekong Delta, which could contribute to making tourism a spearhead sector of Kien Giang by 2020.

Since 1997, Phu Cuong, one of the leading companies specialised in seafood processing exports in Vietnam, has carried out three sea-encroaching projects in Rach Gia city, helping the city expand by an additional 550 hectares.-VNA
