They have been asked to give priority to review in districts 2, 9, 7, 12, Tan Phu, Binh Tan and Go Vap.

The committee also called their attention to sustainably urban growth in eastern HCMC including Districts 2, 9 and Thu Duc, where has been determined to be one of four main development directions of the city.

Population size and urban planning norms for this part must be different compared to areas with slower urban growth rate, it required.

Urban planning as well as plan management and implementation for the eastern part has failed to meet local development demand, which has caused population size increase and overloaded social and technical infrastructures.
