Viet Nam: Secondary Cities Development Project

Sovereign Project | 45198-001

Summary

The proposed Project will address critical urban development issues of Buon Ma Thuot (Dak Lak Province), Ha Tinh (Ha Tinh Province), and Tam Ky (Quang Nam Province) to develop these cities as regional economic hubs to foster balanced regional development. The proposed Project is expected to contribute to diverting rural-urban migration from large metropolitan cities, and strenghtening ties between the project cities and their rural hinterlands.

The proposed Project is in line with the Viet Nam's Socio-Economic Development Plan (SEDP) 2006-2010 which envisions Viet Nam to become an industrialized country by 2010. The SEDP 2006-2010 emphasizes the need for (i) developing urban areas as growth centers; and (ii) modernizing urban infrastructure to attract investment, improve living standards, reduce urban-rural disparities, and ensure sustainable development.

Description

The proposed Project will address critical urban development issues of Buon Ma Thuot (Dak Lak Province), Ha Tinh (Ha Tinh Province), and Tam Ky (Quang Nam Province) to develop these cities as regional economic hubs to foster balanced regional development. The proposed Project is expected to contribute to diverting rural-urban migration from large metropolitan cities, and strenghtening ties between the project cities and their rural hinterlands.

The proposed Project is in line with the Viet Nam's Socio-Economic Development Plan (SEDP) 2006-2010 which envisions Viet Nam to become an industrialized country by 2010. The SEDP 2006-2010 emphasizes the need for (i) developing urban areas as growth centers; and (ii) modernizing urban infrastructure to attract investment, improve living standards, reduce urban-rural disparities, and ensure sustainable development.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The proposed Project will address critical urban development issues of Buon Ma Thuot, Ha Tinh, and Tam Ky to develop these cities as regional economic hubs to foster balanced regional development. The Project is expected to foster the growth of these regional centers and to contribute to diversion of rural-urabn migration to large metropolitan cities. The project cities are preparing to become the next century's medium-sized cites. The selected project locations are rapidly devleoping urban areas, whose potentials have been constrained by weak infrastructure services. The economy of these towns are stagnating. If this situation not receiving sufficient attention continues, the resulting spatial and economic disparities will further constrain not only urban development, but also social stability and Viet nam's overall economic development. In line with government decentralization plans, targeted infrastructure investments in secondary towns and cities will help attract or retain residents and thereby possibly reduce migration to the large metropolitan cities. The diversion away from these metropolitan areas and the potential inducement to foster growth in secondary cities will result in a more balanced regional development.
