HA NOI (VNS)— The Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment has requested relevant bodies to report land use within their jurisdictions by December 15.
Results would be submitted to the Prime Minister before being made public, the ministry said.
Accordingly, the ministry has asked People's Committees in cities and provinces nationwide to look into delayed projects and work with the projects' investors to ensure that they are implemented.
The ministry will also require the committees to take back land allocated to projects that have been delayed too long or were given to investors without land auctions.
"The land should be re-allocated to State land development organisations so it can be auctioned off," said the ministry, adding that the organisations would repay investors after these auctions.
The ministry has also required localities to strengthen supervision of allocated land to ensure it is used effectively.
The committees have been also instructed not to create new industrial zones and complexes or enlarge existing ones if they do not fit in with the Government-approved master plan on industrial development. The new industrial zones and complexes are also required to meet the country's regulations on technical infrastructure, environment and occupancy rates. — VNS
