The goal was mentioned in the latest report from the municipal People’s Committee on urban development in 2021 and planned for the subsequent years.
According to the report, social resources have been instrumental in urban development and the city’s landscape transformation.
In 2021, Hanoi has completed eight urban projects with a total area of 24.02 hectares.
“The rapid urbanization, however, also poses concern over the uneven development and lack of focus investment in essential infrastructure projects,” it noted.
Hanoi also acknowledged the slow progress in setting up the planning process, which would serve as the basis for further investment.
At present, Hanoi is pushing for the completion of three plannings, including the overall planning for the 2021-2030 period, with a vision to 2050; the modification of the city’s construction planning until 2030, with a vision to 2050; and the city’s urban development to 2030, with a vision to 2050.
Once the city’s urban development plan is approved, Hanoi would proceed with the categorization of urban types and set up urban administrative units for the 2022-2023 period.
Hanoi’s authorities also suggested the Ministry of Construction speeds up the relocation of central agencies out of the city’s downtown areas as part of the city’s ongoing planning process.
To date, Hanoi’s area is estimated at 3,358.92 square kilometers with a population of 8.24 million people.
The city’s administrative units consist of 12 urban districts, 17 rural districts, and 584 communes/villages.
Under the city’s construction planning until 2030, with a vision of 2050, Hanoi’s urban system is expected to have an urban center as the special urban area; Hoa Lac town as the urban-type II; satellite urban areas such as Son Tay, Soc Son, Xuan Mai, Phu Xuyen as type III; Phuc Tho, Quoc Oai, Chuc Son as urban-type IV; and 11 villages as urban-type V.
