The administration in Dong Nai Province, southern Vietnam has ordered the organization of an international contest for the planning of the Long Thanh airport urban area to exploit the potential of the under-construction mammoth airport and adjacent areas. 

The contest offers one first-place prize valued at VND2 billion (US$81,091), one second-place prize at VND1 billion ($40,545), and one third-place prize at VND500 million ($20,249).

Acting chairman of the provincial administration Vo Tan Duc assigned the Department of Construction to launch the contest early next month.

Contestants will include reputable domestic and international companies, organizations, and consortiums specializing in planning, design, architecture, and consulting.

The Dong Nai authorities will give priority to those experienced in strategy consulting and urban planning as well as having conducted similar projects.

Once the contest’s results are produced in August this year, the province will choose breakthrough ideas for the Long Thanh airport urban area planning until 2045.

The Long Thanh airport urban area was planned to cover 57,000 hectares, including adjacent areas of Long Thanh International Airport in Nhon Trach, Cam My, Thong Nhat, and Trang Bom Districts.

The Dong Nai government explained that Long Thanh District borders developed areas, such as Nhon Trach District, Trang Bom District, and Bien Hoa City in Dong Nai Province, Thu Duc City in Ho Chi Minh City, and Phu My Town in Ba Ria – Vung Tau Province.

It is also the intersection point of large economic corridors in the region, such as Bien Hoa-Long Thanh (National Highway 51), Nhon Trach-Long Thanh-Thong Nhat (Ho Chi Minh City-Long Thanh-Dau Giay Expressway), Long Thanh-Cam My (Road No. 10), Long Thanh-Thu Thiem, North-South and Bien Hoa-Long Thanh-Ho Chi Minh City Railways, and the Cai Mep-Thi Vai Terminal.

Long Thanh District is also home to the under-construction Long Thanh International Airport, which will be the largest airport in the nation when completed, so it will have advantages in attracting investment in urban, industry, service, logistics, and tourism development.

However, land resources have yet to be fully leveraged to serve socio-economic development.

Therefore, the planning of the Long Thanh airport urban area needs to meet the requirements of a modern, green, sustainable urban area, unlock the potential of Long Thanh International Airport, and meet the demand of local residents and enterprises.
