Games-Costs of hosting Asian Games too high, say Malaysia

April 19 (Reuters) - Malaysia will consider replacing Vietnam as hosts of the 2019 Asian Games only if the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) help foot the bill, a top official at the country's Olympic body has said.

Vietnam withdrew Hanoi as hosts of the multi-sport event in a surprise move on Thursday, citing a lack of preparedness and concerns that holding the quadrennial spectacle for the first time would not prove financially viable for its recovering economy.

Prince Tunku Imran, the president of the Malaysian Olympic body, previously failed to persuade the OCA to modify the costs and profit sharing terms and any bid from the Southeast Asians was reliant on the Kuwait-based body showing some flexibility.

"I'm sure that if we reveal the OCA's requirements to host the Games, even the public will ask us not to host it because of the steep amount. It needs to be reviewed," Sieh Kok Chi, the secretary general of the Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM), said in Saturday's Star newspaper.

"If we are asked, we will not agree immediately. We will consider it if the OCA are ready to review the conditions."

Hanoi was awarded the Games in November 2012 ahead of the Indonesian city of Surabaya with the cost of hosting the event, which had grown to consist of around 40 sports with athletes from 45 countries taking part, warning off many others.

Indonesian Olympic officials were cautious when asked if they were interested in rebidding, also citing concerns about the likely increased cost with less preparation time than originally budgeted for.

The shorter time frame ruled out Thailand, who have hosted the event a record four times since the inaugural one in India in 1951. Thailand will instead focus on bidding for the 2023 Games.

"It is only five years from now. It is too soon for us to prepare for the 2019 Games," Yutthasak Sasiprabha, president of the Thai Olympic body, was quoted as saying by the Bangkok Post.

Singapore International Olympic Committee member Ng Ser Miang told Reuters on Friday the city-state was not interested in bidding, leaving the previous two hosts China and Qatar as possible alternatives.

The OCA said they will name a replacement host during its general assembly on Sept. 20 in South Korea's Incheon, the hosts for this year's Asian Games.

The South Koreans will host a scaled back edition in September consisting of 36 sports and 13,000 athletes, who will use 49 competition and 54 training venues.

VN's longest expressway opens


Vehicles travel on the 245km Noi Bai - Lao Cai Expressway, which connects Noi Bai in Ha Noi and Lao Cai Province. The expressway opened to traffic yesterday. — VNA/VNS Photo Huy Hung

LAO CAI (VNS) — Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung inaugurated the 245 km Noi Bai-Lao Cai expressway, the longest of its kind in Viet Nam, yesterday.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, PM Dung stressed that the expressway played a crucial role in the socio-economic development of the northwest region. He instructed the Transport Ministry and northwestern provinces to ensure that provincial highways could easily be connected to the expressway.

He also asked the Transport Ministry to quickly finish the 19 km section that links Lao Cai to the border with China and expand the Yen Bai-Lao Cai section from two to four lanes.

Nguyen Van Vinh, party secretary of Lao Cai Province, reaffirmed the expressway's important role in helping the province attract investment and trade, as well as reducing the load on the Ha Noi-Lao Cai railway route.

The expressway crosses through the capital as well as Vinh Phuc, Phu Tho, Yen Bai and Lao Cai provinces. The Ha Noi-Yen Bai section has four lanes for vehicles travelling 100 kph while the Yen Bai-Lao Cai section has two lanes for vehicles travelling 80 kph.

The project, which broke ground in 2008, has total investment of nearly US$1.5 billion, including $1.03 billion from the Asian Development Bank (ADB)'s Ordinary Capital Resources, $236.21 million as soft loans from the Asian Development Bank (ADB)'s Asian Development Fund and $170.31 million as the Government's counterpart capital, which was spent on site clearance. At least 25,000 households were cleared for the project.

The expressway will shorten the travel time from Ha Noi to Lao Cai from the current seven hours to 3.5 hours, in addition to reducing the time it takes to drive from Ha Noi to Tuyen Quang and Ha Giang.

PM Dung also inaugurated the opening of a cast iron and steel plant in Tang Long Industrial Complex in Bao Thang District yesterday.

The joint venture between Viet Nam Steel Corporation, Lao Cai Mineral Company and Kunning Steel and Cast Iron Joint Stock Company was completed in three years and will initially produce 500,000 tonnes of cast iron per year. Part of a long-term development plan for the country's steel sector, it will provide jobs for about 1,000 locals.

PM Dung stressed that the new plant would help the domestic steel sector meet demand and reflected the ongoing co-operation between Vietnamese and Chinese companies.

Also as part of his working visit to Lao Cai, PM Dung reminded local authorities to take advantage of tourism to promote sustainable development during a working session on Saturday with provincial authorities.

In addition, he asked the locality to foster the mineral exploitation and processing industry as well as agro-forestry production and said the province should take more drastic measures to implement the national strategy programme on building new-style rural areas.

Regarding a development plan for the popular tourist destination of Sa Pa, the PM said Lao Cai should invite foreign consultants if necessary so that the plan could optimise Sa Pa's potential and advantages while preserving local cultural characteristics, natural landscape and heritage and protecting the environment. He suggested local authorities work out policies to mobilise resources for developing transport infrastructure and tourism services.

Lao Cai's economic growth was estimated at 13.7 percent in the first nine months and the number of tourists rose 33 percent from the same period last year, according to chairman of the provincial People's Committee Doan Van Huong.

Authorities aim to develop the area into a tourism zone covering around 363 ha and comprising urban residential areas, tourism sites, agriculture zones and the Hoang Lien National Park.

PM Dung also inspected the construction site of a cable car line that will carry visitors to the top of Mt. Fansipan, Viet Nam's highest peak. The line is scheduled to be complete by April 2015. — VNS

World's Tallest TV Tower Could Rise in Hanoi

Quote:
Rivalling Ho Chi Minh City's Vincom Landmark 81 and its supporting towers, South Korean developer Daewoo is planning a huge mixed-use destination for a currently vacant property in Hanoi's Tay Ho district. The centrepiece of the residential, office, hospitality, and shopping hub would be the tallest broadcast tower in the world, planned to overtake the 634-metre Tokyo Skytree by just two metres.

According to Zing, the tower's exorbitant $900 million (USD) cost is calling some — including Chairman of the Vietnam Construction Association Dr. Pham Ngoc Dang — to question its true purpose. The public broadcaster Vietnam Television, who proposed the massive tower, cites its economic potential to draw tourists as a key reason for the adventurous scheme.
