Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The PPTA is in line with the Viet Nam's Socio-Economic Development Plan 2006-2010 which envisions Viet Nam to become an industrialized country by 2020. In the Orientation Master Plan for Urban Development to 2020, the Government aims to develop model cities and divert rural migration away from the large cities through the development of secondary cities and strengthening of rural-urban linkages. The proposed Project will address the GMS strategy to transform transport corridors into full-fledged economic corridors as identified in ADB's Regional Cooperation Strategy and Program for GMS (2009-2011) and confirmed during the 15th Ministerial Meeting of the GMS Economic Cooperation Program and the GMS Development Dialogue. ADB's Country Strategy and Program (CSP) for Viet Nam 2007?2010 emphasizes the need to target infrastructure investments in small and medium-sized cities, particularly those along the GMS economic corridors. The Assessment, Strategy and Roadmap (ASR) for the urban development sector in Viet Nam that is expected to be completed by June 2010 will accord a priority on the integrated urban development approach in corridor towns.
Impact To develop Viet Tri, Hung Yen, and Dong Dang to complement Hanoi as northern Viet Nam's economic centers and to contribute to the transformation of the NSEC from transport corridor to full-fledged economic corridor.
