Platinum Dragon Empire Inc. had submitted a proposal to Ba Ria-Vung Tau province authorities, Hanh Duong, president of a subsidiary firm, told Thanh Nien Tuesday.

The province had agreed to lease a large area of land for the purpose, he added.

The US company plans to build a $300 million, 200-hectare entertainment complex themed “Wonderful World”, and a $250 million underwater world.

The group expects to complete the mammoth project in two and a half years.

The province People’s Committee recently issued a license to another US company, Winvest Investment LLC group, for the Saigon Atlantis Hotel at an estimated $300 million.
