Hanoi (VNA) – The Quang Ngai provincial People’s Committee has agreed for a local investor to do a feasibility study on a resort project in Ly Son island district.

The study was proposed by the Vietnam Infrastructure Investment and Development Joint Stock Company (VIID) in a document dated March 13, 2017.

The People’s Committee asked the Department of Construction and the Ly Son District People’s Committee to guide, support and create favourable conditions for the company to conduct the survey and find suitable locations for the above project.

Located to the north-east of Quang Ngai province, 27km from the mainland, Ly Son district has two islands, Big Island and Small Island. The island covers an area of over 10sq.km, with the three communes of An Vinh, An Hai and An Binh and total population of some 22,000, of whom 60 percent live mainly on fishing, 30 percent live on agriculture and the rest have other means of livelihood.

By the end of 2014, the island district began to get access to the national grid. Since then, infrastructure and accommodation services have started to develop but mostly in motels, homestays and mini hotels. Muong Thanh is the first four-star hotel to be built in Ly Son, which opened in May 2016 with 92 standard rooms.-VNA
