National housing development strategy approved

Updated: 18:03’ - 23/12/2021
By 2025, the average housing floor area per person will reach 27 square meters with 28 square meters in urban areas and 26 square meters in rural areas.

Such is a salient point of the national housing development strategy for the 2021-30 period, with a vision toward 2045 recently approved by Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh under Decision 2161/QD-TTg.

Accordingly, by 2030, the percentage of solid houses nationwide will increase to 85-90 percent (100 percent in urban areas and 75-80 percent in rural areas). Meanwhile, 90 percent of houses across the country will be equipped with complete electricity, water and wastewater drainage systems connected to local technical infrastructure systems.

The strategy also aims at revising policies on development of social houses for low-income people in urban areas, industrial park workers, public employees, civil servants, officers and soldiers of the people’s armed forces.

Meanwhile, poor households in rural areas and ethnic minority and mountainous areas will get support from the state budget, receive soft loans and other local resources to build their houses.

Residents in areas prone to climate change or natural disasters such as storms, floods and landslides will be entitled to borrow preferential loans to build, repair or renovate their houses.

The state budget will also provide financial support for resettlement of those residing in dangerous areas.

In order to achieve the aforesaid targets, the strategy sets out several tasks and solutions for housing development including improving housing policies; planning and developing land funds for housing; intensifying national housing development activities and local housing development programs; developing the real estate market; and carrying out administrative reform.- (VLLF)
