Ho Chi Minh City flood control master plan inadequate

25 Nov 2016, VNA

Ho Chi Minh City authorities are being urged to develop a master plan for flood control as new flood-prone areas have emerged and flooding has re-occurred in others. The city’s priority objective to 2020 will be solving flooding in the city centre and parts of five outlying areas covering a total area of 550 square kilometres, with a population of 6.5 million.
