HÀ NỘI – Leaders of six provinces on Tuesday sat down with relevant ministers to talk about the construction of a coastal highway route, the detailed plan for which was approved back in 2010.

The 550-kilometre highway will traverse the northern port city of Hải Phòng, Quảng Ninh, Thái Bình, Nam Định, Ninh Bình and Thanh Hóa provinces.

Minister of Planning and Investment, Nguyễn Chí Dũng, said that without such a route, the six cities won’t be able to connect, wasting potential development opportunities.

Dũng said the ministry had received investment plans from all six provinces, but each differs on the scale, direction, mechanism and resources for the route. Meanwhile, it was necessary to unify the direction, scale and importance of connecting with each other to promote effectiveness, he said. Tiếp tục đọc “Provinces agree on coastal road”
