The People’s Committee of Ho Chi Minh City has just sent a letter to the Ministry of Construction on guiding the approval of land clearance boundaries before approving investment projects to carry out compensation, support, and resettlement work.

The An Phu intersection project in Thu Duc City with a scale of three floors and a total investment of VND 3.4 trillion is expected to solve traffic congestion in the east of the city

According to Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee, the Ho Chi Minh City Belt Road 3 project is allowed by the Prime Minister to apply the mechanism for implementation at the same time as some other tasks related to compensation, support, resettlement, and identification of waste disposal sites for construction waste in the project preparation phase (at Resolution 105/2022).

In implementing this mechanism, the city has organized compensation, support, and resettlement work very effectively, shortening the time compared to the usual way, from one year to one and a half years.

Specifically, just after 1 year from the time the project was decided to be invested, more than 70% of the land was handed over to implement the construction of the project, exceeding the government’s schedule.

The implementation of the compensation, support, and resettlement work of Belt Road 3 project has become a model project to continue to study and apply to land recovery projects with urgent progress requirements in the area.

Currently, Ho Chi Minh City is implementing major projects such as HCMC – Moc Bai highway, Belt Road 4, construction of Belt Road 2 – section 1 (from Phu Huu bridge to Vo Nguyen Giap street), Belt Road 2 – section 2 (from Vo Nguyen Giap Street to Pham Van Dong street…

These are major urgent projects that have great significance for the socio-economic development of the city, serving national and public interests.

Therefore, Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee proposes the Ministry of Construction to consider and provide guidance on the implementation of some tasks during the project preparation process.

Firstly, to organize the establishment, approval, and handover of design documents for land clearance piles (boundary design) in stages (depending on the technical complexity of each line section) to carry out compensation, support, and resettlement work; updated pile design documents for land clearance will be updated to ensure compliance with approved investment projects.

Secondly, based on the approved land clearance pile design documents, localities determine the resettlement needs to determine the location and form of resettlement; establish, appraise, and approve component projects for compensation, support, and resettlement and organize the next steps; establish investment projects to build resettlement areas; implement the land clearance for resettlement areas (if any).

The scope of application is group A projects, in which compensation, support, and resettlement work are separated into component projects in the approved investment policy.

In April 2023, the Government Office issued a notice of the conclusions of the Government Standing Committee at a working session with the Permanent Committee of the Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee on removing difficulties and obstacles in socio-economic development.

The notice states: Allowing the city to carry out compensation, support, and resettlement work for Group A projects (with component projects for land clearance) similar to the mechanism for implementing Belt Road 3 project, assigning the Ministry of Construction to take the lead and urgently guide Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee on specific instructions to speed up compensation, support, and resettlement work for the city’s key transport projects and report back to the Prime Minister in May 2023. Up to now, Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee has not received guidance from the Ministry of Construction on the above content.
