Ministry seeks to determine construction progress and address any obstacles.
The Ministry of Construction (MoC) has asked localities to review and examine issues relating to social housing projects and report back before June 30.
The reviews and examinations will focus on the quantity and construction progress of projects as well as commercial housing projects that have been converted into social housing.
The MoC also requested localities propose measures to deal with slow construction and delayed projects and other obstacles, in order to accelerate project implementation.
Vietnam remains in the initial stages of developing social housing at a time when average annual per capita income is around $2,000, Minister of Construction Trinh Dinh Dung told local media on the sidelines of the 9th Session of the 13th National Assembly meeting. “Overall policies relating to the development of social housing must be implemented stably with a long-term strategy and, in particular, loans for buying social housing should be at low interest rates with flexible conditions,” he said.
Vietnam has already achieved remarkable results in building social housing at many industrial parks in northern Bac Ninh and Thai Nguyen provinces and Binh Duong and Dong Nai in the south, which have met the needs of thousands of workers and other people in area.
