Main challenges for the city and its hinterland:

  • Creating an integrated system for waste management, water, sewage and water waste treatment at the metropolitan level.
  • Develop its road transport infrastructure; multiply the transport links between the city and some parts of its hinterland, supporting the intermodality.
  • Attracting new investments with added value.
  • Availability of land to build/expand on within the City.
