The southern province of Binh Thuan recently decided to revoke eight tourism projects in Ham Thuan Nam District due to delayed implementation.

Those included four projects in Tan Thanh Commune and four in Thuan Quy Commune.

The provincial authority said that it could not contact the investors of these projects.

Previously, the provincial Department of Planning and Investment proposed 20 projects to be revoked in the southern province, including eight projects in Phan Thiet City and 12 projects in Ham Thuan Nam District.

The department said that strong measures would be taken to revoke stagnant projects and prevent land from being left deserted.

Other projects would continue to be checked for updates on their implementation progress.

The provincial Department of Planning and Investment’s statistics revealed that as of July 20, more than 100 tourism projects had not started construction in the province.

The department said that the stagnation was mainly due to problems in land clearance.

Binh Thuan has rich potential for sea tourism with nearly 200 kilometres of coastline and a warm climate all year round. It has plentiful tourist attractions such as Mui Ne, Phu Quy Island and Ke Ga Lighthouse.

In the Viet Nam tourism development master plan to 2020, Binh Thuan was recognised as one of the key provinces for the country’s tourism development.

Ham Thuan Nam District has beautiful beaches and attracted a large number of tourism projects.

The development of transport infrastructure in recent years has also helped boost tourism in the province, such as the HCM City – Long Thanh – Dau Giay Expressway, upgrades to the Dau Giay – Phan Thiet and Phan Thiet – Nha Trang highways, and Phan Thiet airport. — VNS
