VN grappling with limited land resources: report

Update: December, 14/2013 - 09:17

HA NOI (VNS)— Viet Nam has been listed as one of countries that have the lowest land resources globally, with less than 0.5 hectares of agricultural land per capita.

The information was released at a conference on Natural Resources and Environment held in Ha Noi on Thursday. It revealed that there had been a boom in urban land speculation in the country, which had affected housing funds for low-income people, while a big chunk of industrial zones had been left unutilised.

In addition, Viet Nam's natural resources at sea had been placed at risk by illegal exploitation. — VNS
