The central coastal province of Binh Dinh on July 7 granted an investment certificate to the Singaporean KinderWorld Education Group to build Outward Bound skill education facilities.

The 60.3-hectare project in the Tan Thanh tourism site at the Nhon Hoi Economic Zone will be developed in three phases at a total cost of 10 million USD. It will include an Outward Bound life skill ward and auxiliaries, accommodation for students, teachers and experts; and other facilities.
