Many new urban areas formed
 
Many major traffic constructions have been completed and put into operation in the city as a central urban area, contributing to providing considerable stimulus to the general growth of the province. They include Nha Trang – Da Lat Road, Nha Trang – Dien Khanh road section, Phong Chau Street, lengthened Nguyen Thien Thuat Street, lengthened Tran Nhat Duat, Street No. 4, etc. Khanh Hoa People’s Committee is focusing funding on major projects which are underway such as the ring road 2 linking with Ngoc Hoi traffic point; roads and traffic points connecting with Nha Trang Airport, lengthened To Hien Thanh Street and some other projects with drawing design and site clearance procedures underway or about to start construction such as Provincial Road 3 and D30 Road. Besides, several projects on urban infrastructures, resettlement area infrastructures and irrigation facilities have received synchronous investment to meet the city development demand.
 
Over the past years, Nha Trang City has experienced broad urbanization with the formation of many new spacious urban areas, namely VCN Phuoc Hai, VCN - Phuoc Long I, VCN - Phuoc Long II, An Binh Tan, Le Hong Phong I, Le Hong Phong II, My Gia, etc, with technical infrastructures completed synchronously, linked with existing urban areas and put into business operation, contributing to enhancing the city’s appearance in the west.

Breakthrough in measures required
 
Besides achievements, there have remained some shortcomings related to projects behind schedule, urban order management challenges, limited human resources in tourism; traffic infrastructures failing to keep up with the increase in road vehicles, difficulty in land fund allocation for stationary traffic facilities, etc. Synchronous and drastic solutions are required to solve these shortcomings and limitations in the coming time.
 
Nha Trang City needs to overcome above challenges and limitations, focus on synchronous and breakthrough innovations in order to take good advantage of its potentials and strengths with continued orientation to create a strong socio-economic growth motive for the province.
