The first option is that the headquarters of 11 ministries and the office of Central Committee of Viet Nam Father Front will be moved to Tay Ho Tay area (the western area of West Lake). About 14,000 people will be working at the headquarters.

The office of Viet Nam Social Security will be in Tu Liem District as its construction is ongoing.

Once the headquarters are relocated in Tay Ho, building will have about 15-20 floors plus three or four basements. The first option costs nearly VND12 trillion.

The second option is all the headquarters of 13 ministries and Government agencies will be moved to an area of 55ha in Me Tri Ha area in Tu Liem District. About 15,000 people will be working at the headquarters. This option requires funding of more than VND14.3 trillion ($613 million).

The third option is that six ministries will have their headquarters relocated in 20ha in Tay Ho Tay and the other seven ministries will relocate in 55ha in Me Tri Ha.

This option costs VND17 trillion.

According to the Viet Nam Institute for Urban and Rural Planning, in the three options, planners have not completed impact assessment on transport in the planned areas when the headquarters are moved.

Initial assessments show that infrastructure in Tay Ho Tay can handle an additional 10,000-14,000 people thanks to improved transport infrastructure of roads, urban railway and public transport and medium population density.

Meanwhile, Me Tri Ha is located in an urbanising area, near the city’s ring road No 3 and Thang Long Boulevard which are under high pressure of traffic congestion. Moreover, major housing projects are being developed in the Me Tri Ha neighbourhood, which could put more pressure on infrastructure in the area.
