The Hoa Lac Hi-tech Park, approved in 1998, covers nearly 1,590 hectares in Hanoi’s outlying districts of Thach That and Quoc Oai. By mid-August last year, it housed 70 projects with a total investment of more than 56 trillion VND (2.67 billion USD). The Hoa Lac Hi-tech Park, one of three national hi-tech parks, was established to become a satellite city specialising in scientific activities and attracting foreign investment. 
During the visit, the General Secretary participated in a Tet tree planting festival, an annual activity initiated by late President Ho Chi Minh in 1959. He said he hopes the tree planting is held and maintained by the park and its staff, beyond being merely a ceremonial formality.
