 A meeting between officials of ministries, agencies and localities was held on March 3 to discuss the general construction planning for Ha Noi capital area up to 2030, with a vision towards 2050.

The PM approved the plan at Decision No. 1758/QĐ-TTg at the end of 2012 for the area that included Ha Noi and nine neighbouring provinces of Vinh Phuc, Bac Ninh, Hai Duong, Hung Yen, Ha Nam, Hoa Binh, Phu Tho, Thai Nguyen and Bac Giang. The total construction zone of urban and rural areas is 24,314 km2 with the population of 17.6 million.

The three major goals of the plan are:

Firstly, the plan needs to meet development goals, planning management and construction requirements, ensure the national resource allocation effectively, limit shortcomings of the urbanization process on the environment and mitigate climate change consequences to develop the region more sustainably and prosperously.

Secondly, it will facilitate urban areas to uphold their roles to promote the development of neighbouring areas in terms of economics, culture-society and balances between rural and urban areas.

Thirdly, it will be a foundation for the establishment and adjustment of the overall plans of neighbouring provinces and regions, the planning on construction of new rural establishment and technical infrastructure as well as a database for management work to propose regional management models and policies.

Accordingly, by 2050, the Ha Noi zone will become a huge urban region with its functions as synthesized economics of the nation and the Asia-Pacific region.

The capital city will become a city of "Green - Culture - Civilization - Modern", and the urban of highly competitive, efficient, dynamic development, among other features.
