QUANG NINH (VNS) — Vietnamese Government Inspector-General Huynh Phong Tranh met with citizens in Quang Ninh Province for the first time on Friday to listen to their complaints and concerns.
The Inspector-General received 35 citizens on behalf of 215 families from Phuong Nam Ward, Uong Bi City.
Ngo Thi Man told Tranh about local families' concerns regarding the compensation for land withdrawal for a project in Uong Bi City.
On behalf of other families in the ward, she requested support for farming production and asked that the compensation rate for site clearance be 150 per cent of the compensation rate for agriculture land, following a decision by the provincial People's Committee.
She added that local residents had submitted these requests to the Government many times but had seen no result.
Tranh said the province's land withdrawal decision aimed to serve public purposes.
He deemed the compensation request irrational because the land was not urban land and asked local authorities to consider the other requests based on existing regulations and laws. — VNS
