The urban area will be developed and extended from the town centre to Cam Thuong Commune in Ba Vi District, covering more than 12,180ha. The area is expected to accommodate roughly 239,800 people by 2030.
According to the Ha Noi master plan for 2030, with a vision towards 2050, Son Tay Town is expected to become an economic, cultural, scientific and technological hub, located northwest of the suburban capital city.
Son Tay will be among five satellite towns that will have functions and independent operations in healthcare, education and training. The town will develop cultural and historical tourism, as well as high-quality agricultural products to meet the demand in the city's centre.
Son Tay Town, Hoa Lac, Xuan Mai and Phu Xuyen as well as Soc Son will be five satellite towns of Ha Noi by 2030, as per the Ha Noi master plan, approved by the government in July 2011. — VNS
