HCM CITY – More than 5,000 households that live along or on the south bank of the Đôi Canal in HCM City’s District 8 will be relocated in 2018.
Lê Quỳnh Đài, deputy chairman of the district People’s Committee, said the relocation of households would be invested under the PPP (public-private partnerships) mode.
Many investors are keen to invest in the relocation plan, according to Đài, who spoke at a meeting this week in the city.
Lê Văn Khoa, deputy chairman of the city’s People’s Committee, said the relocation plan was one of the city’s key programmes.
The District 8 People’s Committee has been asked to choose an investor who has ability, experience and working interest.
If necessary, the district could petition the Prime Minister to have specific policies for the relocation, compensation and selection of investors to speed up the plan, he said.
The city has encouraged investors to conduct detailed research about the relocation plan to ensure the rights of the households, he said.
Land clearance for the project is estimated to begin in 2018, he said.
The relocation plan on the south bank of the Đôi Canal in District 8 is part of the city’s plan to relocate 20,000 households living along rivers and canals in the 2015-20 period. – VNS
