Da Nang Supports Proposal For International Marina
According to Huynh Duc, the chairman of the people’s committee in Da Nang City, the entire city is in full support of the proposal made by Joe Lewis who is a British billionaire. His plan is to construct a marina within the city that follows the international standard. This is expected to boost local businesses such as luxury hotel in Danang and the economy of the city as a whole.
This proposal was made by the British billionaire through a letter sent to chairman of the city. Based on the content of Joe Lewis’ letter, he intends to construct a marina for the Han River. The letter was sent to Huynh DucTho before Lewis left Da Nang to visit Ha Long which is a city in the North. He was traveling aboard Aviva, his very own super yacht worth $150 million.
ChairmanTho said that they are in support of the proposal and willing to pick a suitable location where the international standard marina can be built.
During his visit to the city, Joe Lewis went to see the Golden Bridge which is a pedestrian spanning 150 meters located in Ba Na Hill resort. He was with Carolyn Carter, his niece, who also happens to be the Miss US Virgin three years ago. Joe Lewis is currently the owner of Tottenham Hotspurs, a football club in England. He enjoyed his visit in Da Nang and extended his gratitude to Chairman Tho for the accommodation he received.
Lewis’ assistant revealed that his boss heard of the Golden Bridge through an international news media and it caught his attention. This is the reason why he decided to dock his super yacht at the port of Tien Sa located in Da Nang before he moved on to his next destination.
Prior to docking, he sent an invitation to the chairman to visit him on his yacht. They have already discussed about his intention to a build a marina that is close to the Han River. If it comes to fruition, this will be the first marina to boast of international standard in all of Vietnam. This will help businesses like luxury hotel in Danang as boats and yachts will more likely dock there in the future.
