introduction to the city

Mayor Photo_Cao LanhCao Lanh was selected as one of Viet Nam’s Model cities to help achieve its aim for 2020 to become a city where economic development goes hand in hand with environmental protection. Through this initiative, the city hopes to showcase a practical example of Vietnamese urban sustainability, which will inform the formulation of a national sustainable city framework unique to Vietnamese culture and priorities.  Under the ASEAN ESC Model Cities Programme the city undertook activities to survey local environmental problems, established  self-governing environmental protection units and raised public awareness and educational campaigns on environmental issues, especially in schools.
