Brokers oppose SAEZ provinces’ suspension of land transactions
VIR

Responding to heating up and increasingly complicated trading in the district which is home to one of the three special administrative-economic zones (SAEZs) in Vietnam, the Quang Ninh People’s Committee has stopped all kinds of land transactions (including conversion, transfer, lease, inheritance and mortgage) in Van Don at least until official information is released about the zone’s status after the national assembly session ending in June. Similar to Quang Ninh, the people’s committees of Khanh Hoa and Kien Giang have issued the same orders in North Van Phong and Phu Quoc. While acknowledging the need to prevent illegal trading, the Vietnam Association of Realtors (VARS) thought stopping all transactions was against the constitution, which allows all citizens to trade their assets. Moreover, the broker said this suspension would freeze the realty market, causing serious consequences not only to the district but also to the whole provinces for a long time.

Adjustments for the plan of Thu Thiem
Thanh Nien

After Decision 367 regarding Thu Thiem New Urban Area, local government in HCMC has changed planning multiple times, which lead to many complications after. Thu Thiem has an area of 930 ha in which the new urban area is 770 ha and resettlement area is 160 ha with population of 45,000. Through adjustments, local government abolished the administrative center of 18 ha, which lead to the eradication of historical Thuong Tho Palace, increased residential area from 55 ha to 112 ha, adjust the height of building from 100 to 86 floors. Accordingly, Thu Thiem might face inundation due to increasing concretization. Over 12,000 households has been re-located, and investment is up to VND30,000 billion, but Thu Thiem is still consisting of large empty land.
