Good for Vietnam.
I'm going to follow this thread with excitement.

So it's decided that the "Financial Tower" in Saigon will be built? I remember seeing renderings of it somewhere in Hanoi (!) last time I was there, so I guess it makes sense.

And, wow, by the way! Someone went crazy on the CCTV HQ in Beijing.


Go Viet Nam!

Video: Hanoi Metro Project

we are very proud of this!!!!!!

watch here: http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...=vietnam&hl=en

EASIBILITY STUDY FOR HANOI TRAMWAY, PHASE 2 Following an initial contract won in 2004 to carry out a feasibility study for a ... all pilot tramway line in the Vietnamese capital, in April 2005 SYSTRA was selected by the People's Committee of Hanoi and the French authorities to conduct further investigations into certain aspects of the 2004 study. The aim of this work is to enable the launch of a project which can be implemented by 2010, the date of the 1000th anniversary of the founding of Hanoi city.

The study is financed from FASEP funds at a cost of ?600 K and will last 6 months. The work will be carried out by a multidisciplinary team made up of 10 experts from different departments of SYSTRA (PLT, GCOA, and EST). For the financial part of the study, SYSTRA has teamed up with Dexia Bank, which specializes in organizing investment for transport projects in developing countries. The findings of the study will be presented at the end of September 2005 at a Franco-Vietnamese conference. This should enable the tender for the construction contract to be launched during the course of 2006.
