"The proposal aims at development that embodies four ‘pillars of sustainability' – economic, environmental, social and cultural, and emphasizes preservation of a ‘green corridor' in the rich rice growing areas of the former Ha Tay Province. (Ha Tay, to the west of the city center, was annexed to Hanoi a year ago.)"

"PPJ [the consultants] suggested two options, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. Integral to both is the concept of a ‘green corridor' that will cover 60 percent of the area of the new capital city, leaving 40 percent for intensive development."
