Get into the swing of it with a golfing holiday to Vietnam
Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has requested ministries and localities to intensify their control of a plan for new golf courses.
After two years of implementing the plan, Britons may want to take out
sports travel insurance to play the 29 new courses in Vietnam.
Another 61 courses are scheduled to be completed in the near future, potentially making Vietnam one of the best oriental golfing venues in eastern Asia, according to the Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI).
But Prime Minister Dung has come under fire for the plans in recent years, with critics claiming that the developments have not created the jobs, services and tourist attractions that were expected.
With that in mind, Dung wants the provincial people's committees responsible for the developments to report to the MPI, as a more hands-on approach is taken towards the scheme.
Committees will be expected to report on all projects; from a readjustment to the plans to relocation before the PM gives it the green light. Even those that were granted investment certificates before will be bound by the new rules.
Dung has also asked the provinces hoping to build new courses to undertake an in-depth feasibility study before going to the MPI for the adjusted plan.
