It is known that in 2020, the project was approved by the Binh Thuan Provincial People’s Committee with a total investment of over 297 billion VND, encompassing a mangrove forest area of over 32.3 hectares divided into two zones: residential construction area (nearly 10 hectares) and park area (over 22 hectares). The State will auction land use rights for nearly 10 hectares of the residential construction area to reinvest in the park area.

However, during a canoe survey along the mangrove forest area near the Phu Hai River in April 2021, Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee Duong Van An stated: “Currently, the mangrove area has developed a very beautiful green carpet. This area also attracts many storks, various bird species gathering to live, creating a healthy living space. Implementing residential planning here will cause Phan Thiet City to lose a rare and largest remaining mangrove forest in the locality.” Therefore, in May 2021, the project was temporarily halted following the directive of the Standing Committee of the Provincial Party Committee, and it has now been agreed to allocate the entire area for the construction of an eco-park.
