I, as Minister of Infrastructure, am establishing an official committee to select and plan our capital city and plan new facilities where necessary. We shall issue a White Paper  at the end of our duties making recommendations.

The Committee shall have four or six members appointed by the minister, three or four of which shall be non members of Parliament. I have already reserved one seat for one individual I shall contact. The Minister shall chair the committee. Interested persons shall apply below.

Even though I'm not a member of Parliament I would be very interested in such.

I suggest we look at the city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra. I don't know about the conditions in the ground, but it has a truly magnificent plan. We wouldn't need to do any work! Tongue (Or at least that much in terms of spatial planning)

It has a nice layout but the ground layout I don't believe is what we really want it reminds me of a suburb or a small city much like someone in the mountain west without the mountains.

That outer circle is nearly 8 km in diameter. The innermost one is 2 km in diameter-- twice that of the Vienna Ringstrasse. This allows us to work with a virtually ideal layout-- think about it, almost all ideal city plans have been circular--while not having to overly tear up the city.

Minister Simfan, I recommend Asuncion, because of its' central location and already existing infrastructure.

Being a new nation, I also propose that we build an entirely new capitol region in the Asuncion area, using a neo gothic design.

Perhaps your committee can consider this in your deliberations.

The end of the week has to my knowledge already elapsed. I would really like to see some substantial results out of this very interesting project, so you really should this get going, Simfan.

I am pleased to announce that the following persons have been selected to sit on the Capital Planning Committee:

The Rt Hon Barnes, MP
Mr Rpryor03, MP
Mr AverroŽs Nix
Mr Theodore Cranberry

The Rt Hon Simfan, MP (Chair)

I thank all applicants for their interest. The first topic on the agenda-- the factors in choosing the capital and proposals thereunto.

I have to admit I very much like the outlay of Santa Cruz de la Sierra. It seems to be a city of the right size (1.5 million), a very central location (at the foothills of the Andes), and its street network and outly allows us to "play" a little bit in a quite effective manner.

The city is certainly preferable in my opinion to Cochabamba or any other so far named possibilities (safe for maybe Buenos Aires, but that is just my pipe dream)

Unless any other members of the committee have objections, I will assume consensus regarding the selection of Santa Cruz de la Sierra as the new capital. Pending affirmation of this, we will proceed to discuss the general nature of improvements to the city, what accommodations will need to be made for use as the seat of government, and perhaps the desired nature of the urban pattern.
