Japanese government agencies have held meetings with leaders of a consortium between Vietnam’s BRG Group and Japan’s Sumitomo Corporation to push progress on the North Hanoi Smart City project

North Hanoi Smart City is on the list of key economic cooperation projects agreed during Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh’s visit to Japan in 2023.

Tetsuo Saito, Japanese Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism, visited the North Hanoi Smart City project recently and met with the board of directors of the North Hanoi Smart City Development Investment Company.

At the meeting, Minister Saito listened to the North Hanoi Smart City representative’s brief on the overall project and the status of preparations for its implementation.

According to the company’s representative, the project plays an important role in the partnership between the two corporations, and is a sustainable symbol of Vietnam-Japan diplomatic ties to realise the dream of a green, beautiful, and modern urban area on par with international standards.

On April 24, during a working visit to Japan, Takashi Yanai, general manager of the logistics infrastructure business division at Sumitomo Corporation, and Nguyen Thi Nga, chairwoman of BRG Group, vice president, and general director of of the North Hanoi Smart City Development Investment Company, also had a meeting in Tokyo with Hajime Wakuda, deputy commissioner for International Affairs, Agency for Natural Resources and Energy under the Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry, about the North Hanoi Smart City project.

At the meeting, representatives of BRG Group and Sumitomo Corporation shared their aspirations to turn North Hanoi Smart City into the first carbon-neutral urban area in Vietnam and the world. Developing an increasingly sustainable environment will contribute to realising Vietnam’s 2050 net-zero commitments made at COP26 and the national climate change adaptation plan.

North Hanoi Smart City has a total estimated investment of nearly US$4.2 billion, spanning nearly 272 ha in Dong Anh district.
