Vietnam tightens land management

Vietnam’s ministries of Construction, and Natural Resources and Environment have requested provinces and cities review state management on land prices amid ‘land fever’ in some localities.

The environment ministry said land prices in some localities and areas have increased dramatically, which could affect socio-economic development and investment projects.

It assigned the General Department of Land Administration to inspect the planning, leasing and transferral of land in 26 localities. In Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, the department will inspect the land registration, the issuance of land-use rights certificates, changes of land-use purposes and land-use management in a number of projects which have been slow to put land into use.

The construction ministry also requested localities to publish information relating to planning, the progress of infrastructure development projects and real estate projects, especially big ones and their merger, establishment and upgrading of administrative units.
