Hai Phong has approved the construction of a new cargo terminal at its Cat Bi International Airport at a cost of VND390 billion ($17.11 million).

The Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV) would be the developer and fund the construction, city authorities said in a statement.

The 64,000-square-meter terminal will be able to handle 100,000 tons of goods a year.

Construction is set to begin in the first quarter of 2022.

Hai Phong, two hours east of Hanoi by road, is home to a key port for both domestic and international trade.

The city administration wants to build an airport in Tien Lang District to reduce the overload on Hanoi's Noi Bai International Airport.
