The Government on June 6 issued Resolution No. 43/NQ-CP on a number of key tasks of administrative procedure reform in the formulation and implementation of land-using investment projects in order to improve the business environment.
Accordingly, procedures for selecting investors for land-using investment projects will be conducted through auctions of land use rights, biddings to select investors for projects involving land use and land allocation, and land lease not through bidding or auction of land use rights.
Investment registration procedures or verification will be abolished but investment certificates will be granted to land-using investment projects not in sectors subject to conditional investment.
In addition, investors will not be required to implement procedures for applying for construction planning permits or submit excerpts of cadastral maps or cadastral surveys of land parcels when carrying out administrative procedures for their projects.
The resolution prescribes the publication of administrative procedures for the implementation of investment projects on the national administrative procedure database and posting thereof at headquarters of administrative procedure-settling units and agencies.
Results of the settlement of administrative procedures for the implementation of investment projects must be made public on websites of ministries, ministerial-level agencies, government-attached agencies and provincial-level People’s Committees.
The resolution also requests the enhancement of inspection and examination of administrative procedure implementation and strict handling of cadres, civil servants, public employees, agencies and organizations that violate regulations on administrative procedures.-
