The HCMC Department of Transport has proposed building a small airport in Can Gio to boost the outlying district’s socioeconomic development.

Speaking at a meeting on the plan for HCMC’s road, railway and airport system in the 2021-2030 period, with a vision toward 2025, on March 12, a representative of the department said Can Gio District is set to be one of the four new urban areas of HCMC. A new airport will facilitate rescue and fire prevention activities as well as the district’s development.

The plan also includes the construction of a road connecting Tran Quoc Hoan and Cong Hoa streets and updates about metro lines connected to the Tan Son Nhat International Airport and the Long Thanh International Airport.

In June 2020, the Government approved HCMC’s proposal to expand the Can Gio sea encroachment tourist urban area from 600 hectares to 2,870 hectares. 

The project is located in Long Hoa Commune and Can Thanh Town, Can Gio District, and requires an investment of more than VND217 trillion. The Can Gio Tourist City Corporation has invested in the project and is expected to contribute some VND3 trillion per year to HCMC’s budget once complete.

The HCMC Department of Planning and Architecture has proposed developing the Can Gio sea reclamation project into one of the city’s four new urban areas, together with the Hiep Phuoc Port, the Northwest and the Binh Quoi-Thanh Da urban areas.
