Tien Giang (VNA)
– More than 1,000 affordable apartments will be built for industrial park workers at a complex in the Mekong Delta province of Tien Giang, according to Chairman of the provincial Federation of Labour Truong Van Hien.

The residential complex for workers in local industrial parks will be constructed at an estimated cost of 677 billion VND (29.8 million USD). Tien Giang is among the first three provinces in the country alongside Ha Nam and Quang Nam allowed by the government to build such complex, Hien said.

Each project will include, besides low-cost residential buildings, a building for trade unions of industrial parks, a nursery school, a supermarket, and a park and recreation area, to serve the workers and their families, he added.

In Tien Giang, the 3-hectare complex will be located near My Tho Industrial Park and Trung An Industrial Cluster, comprising 12 five-storey and two 12-storey buildings, and row houses. It will provide over 1,000 budget apartments, 30 sqm or 45 sqm in size each, able to accommodate about 5,000 workers.

These apartments can be rented or purchased at low prices.

The project is expected to break ground in August 2018 and to be put into use in 2020. –VNA
