Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Khac Than said the 50-year project costs over 3.88 trillion VND (168 million USD) and covers a site of 588.8ha in Thuy Lien commune and Diem Dien town.

Once operational, it is expected to fuel Thai Binh’s socio-economic development and contribute to the growth of the Red River Delta and the whole country, he said.
