Based on the comprehensive assessment on current status of the City’s transport network, the calculation shows that about 45% of the City’s area is at 1 m lower than the sea level, leading to the City and particularly the City’s transport network facing with the risk of frequent flooding, especially in the wet season. The economic feasibility analysis shows that the return period of an integrated transport infrastructure system is 8 years. Therefore, the net profit of the investment is about USD 1.4 billion over the next 30 years.

Speaking at a meeting in Ho Chi Minh City, Mr. Michael Stevns – Project team leader of Siemens Corporation said: “Infrastructure has long life. Investment today will determine the prosperity of any city in the future, especially the city facing with its population increase, extreme weather conditions as flood”.
