By 2045, Hanoi will be transformed into a globally-connected city and a regional economic hub with high living conditions and comprehensive growth.
It is according to the Politburo’s Resolution 15/NQ-TW recently signed by Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong to set out orientations and tasks for development of the Hanoi capital through 2030 with a vision toward 2045.
Under the resolution, Hanoi is designated to become a center and development hub for the Red River Delta and a key economic region of the north, with high regional and international competitiveness by 2030.
Gross Regional Domestic Product (GRDP) growth during the 2026-2030 periods is set to increase to 8-8.5 percent and the GRDP per capita is expected to reach USD 12,000-13,000. The figure is projected to grow to USD 36,000 by 2045.
To fulfill these targets, the resolution puts forwards some key tasks and solutions, including continuing to raise awareness of the significant position, role and importance of the capital city; and developing the capital’s economy rapidly and sustainably based on restructuring the economy in connection with renewing growth models and mobilizing effectively all resources.
It is also necessary to strongly develop the city’s culture and encourage polite and civilized Hanoians, in line with the city’s role as a center of education and training, science and technology and healthcare; and ensuring social security, and social welfare and improvement of the living quality of citizens.
Other tasks include improving the quality of planning and promoting the construction of infrastructure, urban development and management. Furthermore, effective use of natural resources and environmental protection are key ones.
They also include ensuring national defense, security, social order and safety in all situations and promoting diplomacy, international integration and development cooperation to raise the position and prestige of the capital city. The building and rectification of the Party and the political system must be increased for transparency and a stronger Party and political system; and legal systems must be completed in the capital with appropriate mechanisms and policies to meet the development requirements of the city in the new period.
The Politburo asked the Party Organization, administration and locals of Hanoi to stay united and determined to work with central ministries, sectors and agencies as well as other localities to effectively implement the resolution. The Politburo underlined the need to make comprehensive adjustments to the Capital Law to meet the development requirements of the capital city in the new situation. - (VLLF)
