HCMC – Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh has signed Dispatch No.194 ordering the lifting of hindrances to supplies of land and construction materials for expressway and property construction projects.
Under Dispatch No. 194, ministers, department heads and provincial and municipal chairmen are required to conduct timely and effective measures to deal with woes in mining and supplying construction materials for expressway projects.
The chairmen of the provincial people’s committees need to prioritize resources and materials to boost the execution of traffic works, especially expressway projects.
Licensed project investors, contractors, organizations and individuals can apply a special mechanism approved by the National Assembly and the Government in mining to secure material supply.
The provincial chairmen will take responsibility before the prime minister for cases such as the ineligibility of expired mining licenses for extension or the shortage of construction materials for projects.
The PM also ordered expediting the determination of the price list of land, land lease, land use purpose conversion and construction of social housing and housing projects for workers and low-income earners.
Regulatory bottlenecks of realty projects relating to the issues mentioned above must be promptly addressed with the highest responsibility and their reports must be submitted to the prime minister quarterly, starting from the second quarter.
The PM tasked the Transport Ministry with mapping out a plan and taking full responsibility for construction material demands for traffic projects, especially expressway projects.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, based on the total volume of sand mines and yearly mining capacity, would issue guiding documents and enhance task assignment in land allocation, land lease and land use purpose conversion.
The Ministry of Construction will coordinate with other ministries and departments to handle obstacles in supplying construction materials for the execution of expressways and expedite tasks to boost a safe, healthy and sustainable development for the realty sector.
The Ministry of Planning and Investment was requested to quickly review and complete the draft revised decrees detailing the Investment Law in April 2023 to eliminate hindrances in approving and revising investment policy and bidding on property projects.
