organized the 19th of November 2012, on behalf of AFD in Hanoi a seminar on “Management and operation of Hanoi urban mass transit system”. This seminar aims to assist the Hanoi People’s Committee in its choice of management and operation of the public transport network and to provide avenues for discussions and planning for the development of future transport network in the Vietnamese capital drawing on examples in France and East Asia.
The Agence Française de Dévelopment (AFD) co-finance the metro line N° 3, considered as a « pilot line » of the future metro in Hanoi. The other financial partners for this project are the French Directorate General of the Treasury (DG Treasury), the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and European Investment Bank (EIB). Other metro lines financed by other sources are in progress. Projects are assigned to different project owners (Ministry of Transport, Vietnam National Railways and Hanoi People’s Committee). Given the multitude of actors, the main challenge now is to integrate these lines, both technical and institutional.
This report, written by CODATU, seeks to raise the key issues and the main conclusions of the seminar.
