Deputy Prime Minister Tran Hong Ha will be assisted by two deputy heads of the working group, namely Minister of Transport Nguyen Van Thang and Chairman of the Commission for the Management of State Capital at Enterprises Nguyen Hoang Anh.

Members of the working group include Vice Chairman of the Office of the Government Nguyen Cao Luc, Deputy Minister of Transport Le Anh Tuan, Vice Chairman of the Commission for the Management of State Capital at Enterprises Nguyen Ngoc Canh, Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Pham Truong Son, Deputy Minister of Public Security Senior Lieutenant General Luong Tam Quang, Deputy Ministry of Public Security Cao Anh Tuan, Minister of Finance Do Thanh Trung, Deputy Minister of Planning and Investment Nguyen Van Tuong, Deputy Minister of Construction Vo Tan Duc, Vice Chairman of Dong Nai provincial People’s Committee Vo Tan Duc and Vice Chairman of Ho Chi Minh City municipal People’s Committee Bui Xuan Cuong.

The working group is in charge of assisting the Prime Minister in timely resolving obstacles and ensuring the scheduled progress of the project. 

The airport, covering an area of more than 5,580 hectares, has total investment capital of VND 336.63 trillion (US$14.2 billion), with construction divided into three phases.

In the first phase, a runway and one passenger terminal along with other support facilities will be built at a cost of VND109.1 trillion to serve 25 million passengers and 1.2 million tons of cargo each year.

The phase was earlier expected to be completed by 2025. However, the Airports Corporation of Viet Nam (ACV), the investor of Long Thanh International Airport has recently proposed delaying the planned completion time of the essential facility component of the project until 2026 instead of 2025 as initially planned, as it needs an additional six months to complete the passenger terminal.

Once fully completed, the airport, about 40km east of Ho Chi Minh City, will be able to handle 100 million passengers and five million tons of cargo annually./.
