ĐỒNG NAI – The southern province of Đồng Nai will build 20,000 houses from now until 2030 to meet the accommodation needs of workers, students and people with low incomes.
As per the plan approved by the province’s People’s Committee, 17,815 houses will be constructed for workers and people with low incomes, while 2,185 hostel rooms will be built for students.
The project will cost around VNĐ12.2 trillion (US$542.2 million), the funds for which will come from the province’s budget and investors.
Currently, 45 social housing projects are being implemented in Đồng Nai, according to the provincial people’s committee. While construction has started in six projects, the remaining are submitting documents for approvals or waiting for approval from investors.
