NDO/VNA – The central city of Da Nang aims to have the GRDP growth of 9-11% and GRDP per capita ranging between US$7,000 and US$9,000 for 2018-2030.

The goals were mentioned at a workshop held by the municipal People’s Committee on June 11 to discuss the city’s development by 2030 with a vision towards 2045.

The workshop gathered urban planners, economists and policy makers both at home and abroad. These experts shared hands-on experience from a number of local and foreign cities to give leaders of Da Nang a broader view of the city’s advantages, competitiveness, capacity to expand urban spaces in tandem with development of public transport, and how to build policies and raise capital for infrastructure development and develop the city sustainably.

To meet the achievements, Da Nang plans to achieve strong economic growth with breakthroughs by promoting Industry 4.0 and international integration; develop a local and regional hub for startups, innovation and creativeness; strive towards industrialisation and modernisation to motivate the growth and integration of the central and Central Highlands regions.

In addition, it will ensure social welfare, maintain defence, security, and marine sovereignty and have a civilised urban lifestyle.

Da Nang is a young city with an area of more than 1,280 sq. km., including the Hoang Sa (Paracel) island district’s area, and a population of about 1 million people. The city is blessed with about 92 km of coastline and 11 public beaches.

It looks to develop as a green, modern and smart city with unique identity.

The central city has provided 1,196 online administration procedures, including one-stop shops, residential management, public transport and water supervision through the e-government system.
