Funded by the Korean Cultural Centre, the project has a total investment of 1.3 billion VND (56,407 USD). It will comprise 21 houses, 36 sqm each, with a porch and an indoor toilet.

Speaking at the ground-breaking ceremony, Ko Jae Seung, the project’s director, said the friendship village is funded by the RoK’s non-refundable aid. Each house will cost about 63 million VND, of which 53 million VND will come from the aid while the remainder will be sourced from soft loans provided the Vietnam Bank for Social Policies and financial assistance from local authorities.

Once completed, the project will not only accommodate poor people in the area but also promote Vietnamese and Korean cultures in the province./.
