The central province has listed the International Education City (IEC) project in the 2020-25 portfolio with an investment of VND2.43 trillion (US$105.6 million), serving the central and central highlands region as well as Laos and Thailand.

The province said the project, which was proposed by Nguyen Hoang Group, will be developed on 42.6ha at the new planned An Van Duong urban in Huong Tra Township.

It said the project would include education programmes from kindergarten to high-school level – the first of its kind in the province – serving education demands for 10,000 students from provinces and cities in the central region and students from neighbouring countries of Thailand, Laos and Myanmar.

Last year, the group also debuted its first UK Academy in the central province as a prelude for the larger education project at the local.

The province said the project would commence construction later in 2020 for operation in 2023.

The HCM City-based Nguyen Hoang Group has invested in IEC projects in Quang Nam, Quang Ngai, Ba Ria-Vung Tau and HCM City, and more than 40 education centres were built in 15 cities and provinces nationwide since 2010. — VNS
