The city’s government has submitted a project proposal to the Central to create an innovation city by merging its three eastern districts of Thu Duc, 2 and 9. It is expected to spread over 22,000ha and be home to more than 1 million people. The city will be developed into an innovation hub of industry, scientific research and service.
