Researchers will visit these cities in 2007 to meet with urban authorities, planning offices and social science research institutes in order to understand urban issues and development priorities and opportunities for research partnerships. In 2008 and 2009, workshops on urban issues of interest to Vietnam partners will be held in HCMC and Hanoi.
