(CPV) - The 9th Vietnam-France Economic and Financial Forum 2012 titled “Sustainable developing to suburban areas in Vietnam” will be held in Hanoi between March 19- 20, said the French Embassy to Vietnam.

The first Forum was held in 2000, becoming a platform for Vietnamese and French experts to exchange information, study and analyse the situations as well as to speak about different perspectives for sustainable urban planning to serve policy making.

Each Forum focuses discussion on a specific issue, which has been selected by the two co-chairmen. The two co-chairmen of the 9th Forum are Vietnam’s Deputy-Minister of Investment and Planning Cao Viet Sinh and Mr. Christian Jacob, who is former Minister of French Civil Service and has co-presided over the two previous Forums.

During the forum, French and Vietnamese experts will present their studies to delegates for further discussion. The results of the studies and suggestions will be reported to the Government of Vietnam. Besides, they are expected to present the challenges big cities in Vietnam are facing as a result of the country’s rapid urbanization since late 1980s.

Suburban areas in Vietnam are facing big challenges as urbanization has occurred at a high pace, especially in big cities, which poses questions to both local authorities and the Central Government.

As scheduled, delegates will discuss the risks and opportunities during urbanization of suburban areas, human and social issues related to urbanization, the situations of agricultural, industrial and craft development in urbanized areas, and the real situations of craft villages in these areas in the first day.

Meanwhile, the second day will focus on the tools serving land management, urban planning, public finance, energy and sustainable development./.
