Nguyen Tat Thanh Street is always crowded

Nguyen Tat Thanh St. in urgent need of expansion

For many years, Nguyen Tat Thanh St. on District 4 of Ho Chi Minh City, connecting District 1 and District 7, has suffered from serious congestions with no plan of expansion even though the surrounding land is available.

Land donation for street expansion sees enjoyable results

The movement to donate land for street expansion in Ho Chi Minh City began in 2000. After more than 20 years, over 5.4 million square meters have been given to turn dirty, narrow alleys and roads into beautiful ones. The movement has become one proud achievement of the city regarding the motto ‘Cooperation between the State and Citizens for Development’.
