Troubleshooting projects that are slow to deploy

According to functional departments of Long An province, there are currently 4 industrial parks not yet in operation, each area has its own difficulties and problems. These issues have been summarized and submitted to the provincial authorities for consideration and support.

“Functional departments will enhance meetings and dialogues with businesses and investors to solve difficulties and problems under the authority of the province.”

Specifically, a problem in Nam Thuan Industrial Zone (an area of more than 308 hectares) is that some households have not received compensation money, have not handed over land to investors for construction. With this project, the province focused on reviewing and adjusting the rate and scope of boundary cut; expeditiously prepare and submit for approval the plan of land price for compensation, support and resettlement as a basis for implementation

With Thu Thua Industrial Park (with an area of over 188 hectares), problems in compensation and site clearance. The investor is planning to start construction. Therefore, the province focuses on reviewing and arranging resettlement for people whose land is recovered; continue to mobilize people to abide by the State’s guidelines and policies on compensation, support and resettlement to hand over the premises to investors.

Huu Thanh Industrial Zone (with an area of over 524 ha) is also entangled in compensation and site clearance. The province requires the investor to urgently review the measurement, distraint, tallying or being absent from the owner; focusing on settling compensation, support and resettlement according to the approved plan, in which prioritizing the completion of resettlement areas to arrange for people whose land is recovered.

With Tan Phu Industrial Park project (more than 105 ha in phase I), the biggest obstacle is the access road to the small area, so it is difficult to meet the needs of goods transport and transportation of businesses when the project comes into operation. . Therefore, the province focuses on supporting investors to invest in constructing roads into the industrial park.

For projects that are carrying out land procedures, actively support investors in implementing the procedures; For projects that are delayed in implementation due to subjective reasons of investors, they will review the legal bases, conduct project inspection, examination and handling according to the provisions of law, including the project acquisition, land acquisition.

For problems and mechanisms under the authority of the Central, they should promptly report them to them for guidance and solutions ”, Mr. Viet said.
