Phu Tho (VNA) - FLC Group on January 8 started construction on a 10 trillion VND (440.7 million USD) eco-resort tourism complex, FLC Phu Tho, in the northern province of Phu Tho.

Covering an area of nearly 250 hectares, the project would have a five-star hotel, an 18-hole golf course, a resort and an international convention centre.

Located at the west of the province’s Viet Tri city, FLC Phu Tho is closely linked and added value with the companionship of Bamboo Airways as well as the system of resorts and golf courses of FLC Group throughout the country.

Speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony, Trinh Van Quyet, chairman of FLC Group, said Phu Tho province still has the large potential to earn revenue from tourism but it has not really become a key economic sector. The province lacks large-scale and synchronous projects for development. It is the reason for FLC Group to choose Phu Tho to develop a new tourism and resort project, on the occasion of the province’s 25th anniversary of re-establishment.

FLC Group expects to make the project the leading resort in the North, creating a tourism belt, connecting tourism between the ancestral land and other destinations, he added.

He also hoped to receive maximum support from the Phu Tho provincial People's Committee so that they would receive clean land and put phase 1 into operation by the end of 2022.

Bui Van Quang, chairman of the Phu Tho provincial People's Committee, said that FLC Phu Tho is one of the province’s key projects. This is the first eco-resort and golf course complex in the province, which will create many opportunities for Phu Tho to develop tourism, creating a highlight of tourism services in the region, and gradually make Viet Tri a festival city.

Quang also directed relevant departments and agencies to co-ordinate with FLC Group to speed up the project progress, especially compensation and site clearance./.
