HCMC residents welcomed to provide ideas for ‘HCMC general planning’

The Prime Minister approved Decision No. 1528/QD-TTg on September 14, 2021 about the task of adjusting the general planning for Ho Chi Minh City until 2040, with a vision to 2060. Since this is the core for urban space development in the city, SGGP Newspaper cooperates with the HCMC Department of Planning and Architecture to hold a forum to collect feasible ideas for this master planning.

HCMC aims to not only become the national economic leader but also transform into a modern and civilized city in the region. Sadly, the latest Covid-19 outbreak in the city has revealed inadequacies in its urban development. Therefore, the municipal authorities wish to call upon the contribution of the whole community in the planning task so that HCMC can enjoy a more sustainable socio-economic growth in the upcoming time.

The forum ‘Ideas for HCMC general planning’ hopes to receive practical, useful suggestions to shorten the research time and increase efficiency in preparing the project based on the task approved by the Prime Minister.

Recommendations in written form should observe the following requirements:

- Concise and precise (exclusive of attached images, charts, and maps if any), encouraged under the format of a scientific report with proper citing of data and documents.

 - Never been published before in national as well as international journals. Authors of these papers are responsible for the copyright of their own work.

 - With clear author name, home address, email address, and phone number so that the organization board can contact and send royalties.
