We offer you a detailed report of the trip.
SkyWay route to Loi Am Pagoda
The Board Members held negotiations with representatives of Think Phat, a company planning to build a 3,3 kilometre route to Loi Am Pagoda. As a result of the meeting, an agreement was signed to establish a joint venture VIETTRANSNET Ltd. to support the development of future projects in Vietnam and obtain permission for investment activities in the transport sector. After the completion of the pre-project preparation, the project will be transferred for further development to the UST company.
