The PM made the request on April 10 at the Government’s April law-making session which looked into the collection of the public feedback on the draft revised Land Law and the National Assembly (NA) Standing Committee’s opinions about the draft revised Housing Law.

According to the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MONRE), as of April 8, it has received more than 12 million turns of opinions on the draft revised Land Law. Such opinions focused mostly on four groups of issues, including compensation, support and resettlement; land allocation, land lease and land repurposing; land-related finances and land prices; and land use master plans and plans.

At the meeting, the cabinet members scrutinized some major issues of public concern and controversial ones, such as land recovery for socio-economic development, and cases of land allocation or land lease not involving auction of land use rights or bidding for land-using projects, etc.

Regarding the draft revised Housing Law, the session participants debated the regulations on term ownership of apartments; the right to use land with houses owned by foreigners; land use for commercial housing development; and the policy on development of social houses, and houses for workers and personnel in the armed forces.

PM Chinh assigned the agencies in charge of drafting the above two laws, namely the MONRE and the Ministry of Construction, to continue to complete the draft laws for submission to the NA’s 5th session.- (VLLF)
