According to Vice Chairwoman of the Ha Dong District People’s Committee Can Thi Viet Ha, seven projects in the district receive land yet encounter slow progress, and four others are unresolved according to proposal of the 14th Municipal People’s Council under Supervision Report No. 53/BC-HĐND in 2012.
Can Thi Viet Ha pointed out reasons of the slow progress: investors are not financially capable to clear the site; representatives are changed; projects are transferred; investment is not on schedule, and there are debts of financial obligations; due to changes of policy on compensation and support for site clearance, several people do not comply with decision on land withdrawal, or fail to reach an agreement after many negotiations. Furthermore, records of non-state budget projects are inadequate, which cause difficult to the district to detect, check and handle violations.
According to members of the Municipal People’s Council supervision team, the list of projects behind schedule of Ha Dong district is not adequate in comparison with report of the Department of Construction and Department of Natural Resources and Environment. The district also failed to specify responsibilities of each unit and agency in charge of the slow progress, and did not suggest solution for the future. Therefore, they asked Ha Dong to give a specific list of projects according to groups of issues, and pay more attention to the projects in new urban areas and projects which are behind schedule for 10 years. According to statistics of the Ha Noi Department of Tax, Ha Dong district has six projects behind schedule with total debt of VND 101.4 billion.
In conclusion, Permanent Vice Chairman of the Municipal People’s Council Nguyen Ngoc Tuan requested Ha Dong to closely cooperate with city’s departments and agencies to complete the report, and specify reasons of slow progress, thus suggesting measures and roadmaps to handle it. He also asked the district to increase effort to follow up the situation, conduct inspection and examination according to its authority, and propose severe punishment for violations. Furthermore, Nguyen Ngoc Tuan suggested People’s Council of Ha Dong should increase supervision over the projects with slow progress.
