Xaysomboun province officials have permitted a local company to construct tourist facilities in three public parks in the Anouvong district, at a cost of around LAK 20 billion.
The project was greenlit during a meeting organized by the Ministry of Information, Culture, and Tourism last Friday.
Mr. Toumoua Souako, Deputy Governor of Xaysomboun Province, presided over the meeting, which also saw attendance from Mr. Thongsavanh Phosalath, director of the Ministry of Information, Culture, and Tourism of Xaysomboun.
The main goal of the conference was to discuss the economic and technical analysis of the investment project that aims to construct and develop three public parks along the banks of the Anouvong river.
The area of the proposed parks is 3,500 square meters, including the construction of hotels, restaurants, guesthouses, cafes, a gym, a spa, and a car wash which will be built by Sisaket Construction Co., Ltd.
The objective of this project is to bring in money for local businesses and generate employment for residents helping them have a steady income and a better standard of living.
Mr. Thongsavanh also assured that the new facilities would be environment friendly that will not hamper the natural beauty of the mountainous province.
According to the report, the construction of the project would begin this year and continue through next year with funding from the Sisaket Construction Company, which has a 50-year concession on the site.
