  • Product Description

    Abstract:
    In March 2008 the People’s Committee of Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon, approved a revised master plan designed to guide the development of the city through the year 2025. Vietnam’s economy had been growing at rates of 6 to 8 percent per year for nearly two decades, and much of that growth was located in its cities, and in Ho Chi Minh City in particular. Real estate prices were at all time highs, development pressures threatened the historic French colonial core of the city and the wetlands to the west and southeast, and traffic congestion was growing rapidly as the city was registering 1300 new motorcycles and 150 new cars per day. The new master plan designated areas where growth would be encouraged and included a list of transportation and other infrastructure projects and policies designed to support the desired developments. Not all the elements of the plan seemed consistent with its goals, however, and the list of projects was so ambitious—that it was unlikely that all would be built on schedule. The obvious question was what policies and projects should receive priority. This case is designed to support a discussion of the problems of managing growth in a rapidly developing city.

    Learning Objective:
    This case is designed to support a discussion of the problems of managing growth in a rapidly developing city.
