VGP - Ha Noi is planning to build two dependent cities in the north of the Red River and in the west in a bid to resolve the problems of traffic jams, pollution and flooding, said Ha Noi's Party Committee Secretary Dinh Tien Dung during a meeting with voters in the outlying district of Gia Lam.

According to Mr. Dung, the municipal authorities have decided to build new growth poles to attract people to non-central areas. One of the solutions is developing two dependent cities.

This idea was included in the Politburo’s Resolution 15 on the direction and tasks of developing the capital city by 2030, with a vision toward 2045. 

Specifically, Ha Noi plans to build a city in the northern part of the Red River, which would cover the districts of Me Linh, Dong Anh and Soc Son. This would be a city of services and international integration. Noi Bai Airport would be the center of development of the city.

The second city is expected to be set up in the western Hoa Lac area. This would be a city of science-technology and education-training. 

The foundation of the city already exists, which covers Hoa Lac Hi-tech Park and National University. 

It is home to numerous leading Vietnamese corporations, such as Viettel, VNPT, FPT and TH Group, as well as major foreign investors, particularly those from the Republic of Korea and Japan.

It is expected that the government will hand over the Hoa Lac Hi-tech Park to Ha Noi. Appropriate agencies have decided to relocate universities in inner districts to the area.

In the general plan for 2030, with a vision towards 2050, Ha Noi planned to establish five satellite urban areas, namely Son Tay, Hoa Lac, Xuan Mai, Phu Xuyen and Soc Son, covering 25,000 hectares.

The model of two cities in the West and East is highly appreciated by experts compared to the previous general plan of five satellite cities./.
