Ninh Binh Chair Pham Quang Ngoc has written to the Ministry of Transport proposing adding an airport project of the province to the national general airport development plan in the 2021-2030 period, with a vision toward 2050.

Under the province’s proposal, the projected airport may be constructed in Kim Son and Yen Khanh districts, Thanh Nien Online reported.

Explaining the proposal, the provincial government said that Ninh Binh Province has much potential for the development of tourism because of its traditional, cultural and historical features and natural landscape.

In 2019, Ninh Binh Province welcomed over 7.6 million tourists. The province aims to receive 8-9 million visitors and earn VND8 trillion or more in tourism revenue by 2025.

Besides, the province is developing some major tourism projects such as the Kenh Ga-Van Trinh tourist site, the Dong Thai Lake tourism area and the Ho Yen Thang tourism and sports complex to fulfill its targets.

In addition, Ninh Binh Province is also focusing on developing auto production and assembly and electronics and strengthening cooperation with foreign partners.

As such, the number of foreign labourers in the province is expected to rise sharply in the coming years.

Meanwhile, international tourists and experts travelling to Ninh Binh Province have mainly gone through the Hanoi-based Noi Bai International Airport.
