The Vingroup on March 22 officially started constructing the Vincom Hung Vuong Mega Mall and Vinpearl Hue five-star hotel in the central city of Hue.

The complex, built on a total area of 4,500 square metres, has received investment of 700 billion VND (32.5 million USD).

The four-floor mall will include international-standard high-end stores, hypermarkets, a food court, a modern leisure centre and a cinema to meet the demands of local customers.

The hotel will be ten storey’s high, with around 240 luxury rooms and a number of modern spa facilities.

The project, the first that Vingroup has launched in the North Central region of Vietnam, is expected to be up and running by March 2016.-VNA
