Da Nang will become a large, ecological, smart, distinctive, sustainable, internationally-recognized urban area and will serve as a hub for connectivity and development with regional and international urban networks.
These are among the key targets in the Prime Minister’s Decision No. 1287/QD-TTg announced on November 25 on the Da Nang master plan for the 2021-2030 period with a vision to 2050.
The central city will be an international tourist center linked to international event organization centers; a center for high-tech industry, information technology, startups, and innovation; a regional-levelled international financial center; and a world-class coastal city in Asia.
Specifically, it will develop two economic belts to create opportunities for socio-economic development in the city: the Northern Economic Belt (High-tech industry and seaport-logistics), and the Southern Economic Belt (Innovation and high-tech agriculture). Concurrently, it will form seven poles and centers for socio-economic development, including the city center; a high-tech center; a seaport and logistics services center; a coastal resort and tourism center in the coastal areas of Ngu Hanh Son, Son Tra, and Lien Chieu districts and an entertainment and night economy tourism center in Hai Chau and Thanh Khe districts; a training and research service center; a high-tech agriculture center; and ecotourism areas in the mountains.
“Da Nang is the eastern gateway of the East-West Economic Corridor to the Pacific Ocean; easily connecting with economic centers in the region and located on the World Heritage Road in central Vietnam, with attractions such as Phong Nha - Ke Bang, the former imperial capital of Hue, Hoi An Ancient Town, and My Son Sanctuary,” Deputy Prime Minister Tran Hong Ha said at the announcement of the master plan.
“This affirms that Da Nang has potential, advantages, and outstanding opportunities for rapid and sustainable development, playing a role as one of the country’s growth centers.”
He believes the city will become a center for startups, innovation, tourism, trade, finance, logistics, high technology, and information technology and one of the country’s centers for culture and sports, education and training, high-quality healthcare, and science and technology.
