Hanoi Targets Green Plan
Despite the growing development and fast tracked urbanization of Vietnam, the capital city of Hanoi is working on a long term green sustainability initiative. Under the proposed plan 70% of its open spaces will be retained as green areas in the plan which is targeting the next 40 year cycle.
Despite forecasted rampant population growth, a green corridor will be a dominant part of the city's long term planning objectives and will be highly regulated by the Government.
Phuket is continuing to struggle with the present and definate future population explosion and could well look abroad for initiatives to benchmark regulation and planning.
