Mr. Hue said that urban planning and development plays an important role in the socio-economic development as well as the construction of the capital city, not only in the immediate future, but also in the long run. Therefore, Hanoi leaders always attach importance to the planning work and planning management.

Despite receiving active support from the Vietnam Urban Planning and Development Association and the Hanoi Urban Planning Institute, Hanoi's urban planning still has many limitations, the municipal Party chief added.

Hanoi has identified one of the major orientations and key tasks as "Innovate and improve the quality of planning and management" and one of the three breakthroughs is "Exploiting and making the fullest use of brainpower and intellectual resources of experts, scientists, intelligentsia and artists in the city.”

Therefore, in order to realize major orientations, breakthroughs and important urban planning tasks in the time ahead, it is necessary to have closer and more effective coordination between Hanoi’s agencies and the Vietnam Urban Planning and Development Association, as well as the Hanoi Urban Planning Institute, Mr. Hue noted.
