From the International Airport HUB to the International Eco Town HUB:
In the globalization and new information technology era, there is an increasing demand of “new cities” from the emerging new economies of Far East Asia Region that still doesn’t’ have a physical place to take place yet in Europe.
It is not a new demand; for millenniums the men created villages, towns and cities.
This time the demand of living, enjoying, studying, working, relaxing, creating new business and ideas is just “de-localized” or GLOBALIZED. People, families and business men from different region of Far East Asia (such as Japan, South Korea, China, Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar) asking for a great place to spend their vacation and at the same time and in the same place, having the facilities to create new ideas and new business in Europe.
