D4D Vinh Propositive Analysis
  Vinh (Vietnam) Metropolitan - Urban Strategy Development Plan
  Vinh has a strategic position at the top of the Vietnam bottleneck between the south and north of the country. It is on the road between the two main productive centers of Ho Chi Min City (south) and Hanoi (north). This middle-of-the-road position allows for both important logistical functions as well as added value activities for the products that take that road or train. The expansion of activities around the rail station and the bypass can offer a substantive economic base for development. The incorporation of the historical center through upgrading infrastructure, facilities and environmental values must be the outcome of this development policy.
