Its sustainable development has been facilitated on three fundamental pillars "Nature - People - Culture" in conjunction with the global trend of peace, cooperation and integration. As the focus of this space, Ha Long city has developed under the model of a multi-polar city with Cua Luc Bay being the hub of connectivity.

The Western route from Ha Long city to Dong Trieu town opening up to the area of Red River Delta and Hanoi capital city has been projected to become a chain of urban residential areas, green industries and cultural - historical tourism sites, in which the economic zone of Quang Yen acts as the core area and the new driver for this area’s growth.

The Eastern route from Ha Long city to Mong Cai border city and towards the area of Northeast Asia and China has been oriented to the formulation of a chain of ecological satellite cities with high-class general services and marine economy. Its two breakthrough points are Mong Cai Border Gate Economic Zone and Van Don Economic Zone.
