HCM CITY — Prime Minister Phạm Minh Chính has suggested that HCM City should turn its outlying Cần Giờ District into an urban area covered by mangrove forests and biosphere reserves. The Cần Giờ international container transshipment port matches the goal of turning Việt Nam into a maritime and logistics hub, he said. The Central Government will accompany HCM City and the region in quick and sustainable development, he added. Under a resolution adopted by the municipal Party Committee, Cần Giờ District is expected to become a resort and high-quality eco-tourism city by 2030. Meanwhile, the Cần Giờ sea encroachment project will cover 2,870 hectares in the district’s Long Hòa commune and Cần Thạnh town, with a total investment capital of more than VNĐ217 trillion (US$9.1 billion).
