HA NOI (VNS)— Land-related matters - including eviction, compensation and resettlement - have dominated the feedback sent to the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment over the past month.
The ministry will consider valuables ideas to perfect the amendments, while other ideas will be clearly explained to the public, said Deputy Minister Nguyen Manh Hien at a press meeting held yesterday in Ha Noi.
"If the amendments are approved, methods of compensation, who will receive them and who will not, will be clearly regulated," he said.
"Land evictions are expected to be conducted under the Land Law instead of under a Government decree as they have in the past," he said.
He added that the State would assess the price of land for compensation under a land-use purpose at the time when a land eviction decision being made.
Under the current law, the price of land for compensation is calculated according to the market price.
The ministry has also set up a meeting today to collect ideas for the amendments in HCM City, Hien said.
The deadline for contributing ideas, sent by mail or via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org for the amendments to the Land Law, which has been effective since 2003, is March 31.
As the Government called for public opinions on draft amendments to the Land Law, the ministry has been assigned to report ideas from the public to the Standing Committee of the National Assembly before May 10.
The revised Land Law is expected to be adopted by the middle of this year. — VNS
