The groundbreaking ceremony of Aeon Mall Hai Phong Le Chan was held on May 13.
The mall is the sixth of its kind invested by Aeon Mall in Vietnam and is scheduled to be put into operation in 2020.
The VND4 trillion ($180-million) facility covers an area of 9.3 hectares and is located at Ho Sen-Cau Rao 2 Route.
When put into operation, Aeon Mall Hai Phong Le Chan is expected to attract more than 13 million customers per year from Hai Phong city and neighboring areas such as Quang Ninh, Hai Duong, and Thai Binh.
This will be an ideal place for shopping and also as a multi-functional complex which will create an exciting environment for social and cultural exchange for customers of all ages. There will be many integrated entertainment and educational facilities.
Mr. Nguyen Van Tung, Chairman of the Hai Phong People's Committee, said at the ceremony that this is an important event that will promote the socio-economic development of the city. "When the project is completed and put into operation, it will create jobs for more than 2,000 workers and the city will have more revenue sources. It will also create more incentives for many small and medium enterprises in the city," he added.
On behalf of the city's leaders, Mr. Tung asked departments of the city to create favorable conditions to resolve all difficulties and problems that may arise during the implementation of the project by investors. Immediate investment in the infrastructure works under the responsibility of the city has committed to the investors.
For investors, it’s necessary to concentrate human and material resources to invest in the construction of works to ensure the progress, technical and artistic, and especially to ensure absolute safety. Along with the investment Aeon Mall Hai Phong Le Chan, Chairman also asked Aeon Mall Vietnam to research and invest in a second commercial center north of Hai Phong.
On September 20, 2017, Aeon Mall Vietnam signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Hai Phong Investment-Trade-Tourism Promotion Centre and Viet Phat Import Export Trading Investment JSC to build a new shopping mall in Hai Phong, which is expected to create about 2,000 new jobs for the locals.
Under the agreement, Aeon Mall Vietnam will invest, build, manage, and develop integrated shopping malls and provide related services such as catering services, amusement parks for children, as well as rental space, counters, and shelves that are already constructed, installed, and decorated.
