Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has allowed Lotte Properties HCMC to continue implementing the Eco Smart City project at the Thu Thiem new urban area in Thu Duc city, which demonstrates local authorities’ efforts in handling bottlenecks to foreign-invested projects, according to the official.

Binh expressed his hope that Lotte Properties HCMC will pour more cash into the southern metropolis, especially Thu Duc city, thus contributing to turning the city into an innovative, highly interactive, worth-living urban area.

For his part, Lee highlighted HCM City’s potential and affirmed that his company wishes to strengthen cooperation with the Vietnamese economic hub, particularly in smart urban building./.
