In the construction and development process, the Standing Board of Phan Thiet City Party Committee has set a goal of developing Phan Thiet city to meet the first class urban in 2030. However, the scale of the city's planned area, the amount of infrastructure investment, etc. does not correspond with the role, and the location, as well as has not made any breakthroughs in the city's development. Therefore, it is necessary to concentrate resources on planning, investing, and developing the city to be comparable with its role as a nuclear city, a leader, and a socio-economic development motivation of the province.
Policy and orientation to expand Phan Thiet city has been set by the Provincial People's Council and the Provincial People's Committee, term 2006 - 2011, however, the above policies have not been implemented so far.

Phan Thiet is a coastal city with a coastline of about 57 km; However, the coastal axis of Phan Thiet is now divided by estuaries, existing residential areas, tourism projects, and urban areas. The construction planning, landscape, and environment of the coastal area are not beautiful, many locations have been licensed to build tourist works close to the sea, and some places are licensed to build high-rises, covering the view; There are not many public beach areas serving people and tourists in the city. Therefore, the city needs a throughout coastal route from the North (adjacent to Hong Phong commune, Bac Binh district) to the South (adjacent to Thuan Quy commune, Ham Thuan Nam district), creating a main route interconnected to the coast.

In the mentioned areas, there is no planning, and no permit to build (new version) sea-side works to create a clear beach and enhance access to the sea for local people and tourists.

Resolutely withdraw projects that have been licensed for investment and construction in the above-mentioned coastal protection areas if they have not been deployed or delayed building parks, and public works and serving the community. Research and implement the plan to relocate residential areas to the seaside of Lac Long Quan Road, DT.719 road to the opposite side.
