VietNamNet Bridge – HCM City will consider naming two roads after General Vo Nguyen Giap and Chairman of the State Council Vo Chi Cong at its People’s Council meeting this year’s end.
The Hanoi Highway is likely to be named after General Vo Nguyen Giap.
HCM City People’s Committee has said to ask the People’s Council to consider naming General Vo Nguyen Giap and Chairman of the State Council Vo Chi Cong for two major roads in the city at the council’s upcoming meeting.
Earlier, the city’s Vice Chair Hua Ngoc Thuan discussed with relevant bodies on this issue. However, the particular roads that will be honored to carry the names of the two leaders are yet to be announced.
The People’s Committee has assigned the Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism in collaboration with the Department of Transportation and related agencies to review roads, gather materials and propose suitable streets for naming after General Vo Nguyen Giap and Mr. Vo Chi Cong.
It is most likely that the Hanoi Highway will be named after General Vo Nguyen Giap because this is a major and meaningful road in the city, which is adjacent to Dien Bien Phu Road and the road named after General Mai Chi Tho.
