Hanoi (VNA) – The capital city is accelerating procedures to raise the status of Dong Anh from a rural district to an urban one by the end of this year.

The move aims to implement the Politburo’s Resolution No. 15-NQ/TW dated May 5, 2022, on orientation and tasks serving the development of Hanoi toward 2030, with a vision to 2045. The document plans the building of a city within the capital, covering its Dong Anh-Me Linh-Soc Son region in the north and the Hoa Lac and Xuan Mai region in the west; and a smart city on the basis of the regional development on both sides of the Nhat Tan - Noi Bai axis.

Secretary of the Dong Anh Party Committee Le Trung Kien said the locality has prepared all conditions necessary for its upgrade into an urban district.

Nguyen Xuan Linh, Chairman of the Dong Anh People’s Committee, said although the workload remains very large, the district always adheres to regulations.

Accordingly, the local authorities have established a steering committee and 24 working groups in communes and towns to collect constituents’ feedback on the status upgrade.

Linh said via the collection, Dong Anh will take into account people’s opinions and aspirations and review its shortcomings and limitations for timely adjustment./.
