Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai on August 24 gave the green light to a proposal on building the National Exhibition and Fair Centre covering 300 ha in Co Loa commune, Hanoi’s Dong Anh district.

Early this year, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism submitted to the government two options to build the centre, either in Co Loa commune or at the area near the Van Tri fresh water lagoon. Both sites are located in the same district.

The Deputy PM ordered the ministry to assign the investor of the project, the Vietnam Exhibition Fair Centre One Member Company Limited, to expeditiously complete the centre’s 3D building design by October 2015.

The location of the centre is expected to meet the requirements of event organisation, traffic and transport of commodities since the Noi Bai International Airport and other key highways are nearby.-VNA
