The municipal People’s Committee made public the conclusion of its Chairman Tran Sy Thanh regarding the planning process for Hanoi in the 2021-2030 period, with a vision for 2050.

Accordingly, the city’s mayor noted progress has been made regarding the establishment of a draft framework on the vision of the planning, and also the development of a database to aid the process.

"The preparation for the planning process is in the right direction, but efforts are required to ensure that all tasks are completed as scheduled," said the chairman.

Thanh assigned the Hanoi Institute for Socio-Economic Development Studies (HISEDS) as the coordinator in drafting a detailed report on the planning framework and submitted it to the municipal People's Committee in September.

The municipal departments of Planning and Investment, Planning-Architecture, and other agencies are responsible for the setup of a task force specialized in the city’s planning and adjustment of the construction planning.

“Local authorities are required to take into consideration visions of the national planning to ensure the consistency of Hanoi’s planning,” Thanh said.

The planning for Hanoi in the 2021-2030 period, with a vision to 2050 would include the analysis and forecast based on the unique characteristics of Hanoi, the assessment of the current progress of socio-economic development, the use of land resources, a system of urban and rural structure; and the factors required for Hanoi to strengthen linkages with provinces/cities in the capital area.
