Under the project, districts and Bac Giang city will have their own pedestrian street or night-time economic activity development zone, associated with local characteristics.

At first, the province will focus on forming and maintaining walking streets with potential for development in Bac Giang city and Viet Yen district, such as the walking street in the southern urban area in Tan Tien commune, and the nigh-time street in My Dien residential area in Nenh township of Viet Yen district.

At the same time, the locality will study and develop the evening economy with a variety of services and activities at night such as cultural and entertainment, catering, shopping and tourism services.

In large-scale tourist areas and tourist accommodation establishments, Bac Giang province will encourage investment in upgrading night-time services such as cafés, bars, pubs, karaoke and massage parlors.

Bac Giang will consider periodically organising cultural and entertainment events like music festivals, carnival parades, light festivals and street dances at night in line with its cultural and historical events such as Xuong Giang Victory Festival, Yen The Uprising Festival, Tay Yen Tu Festival, Luc Ngan Fruit Festival and Tho Ha Pagoda Festival.

It will consider establishing food markets and food streets to serve tourists, and encouraging restaurants and cafés to extend their opening times, establishing shopping streets and commercial centres to encourage famous brands to place booths there, and encouraging convenience stores to remain open around the clock.

To effectively carry out the project, Bac Giang gives priority to the planning of areas which hold potential in developing the evening economy, upgrading infrastructure, developing services, building mechanisms and policies to encourage investment and develop the evening economy, and ensuring security, order, environmental sanitation, food safety and service quality.
