|Long An focuses on compensation, site clearance and resettlement||Long An focuses on compensation, site clearance and resettlement|
Department of Natural Resources and Environment of Long An province and other departments, branches and localities have removed obstacles and difficulties; focused on compensation, site clearance and resettlement; and handed over the land to implement the project to contribute to local socio-economic development.
Recently, the province's socio-economy has developed strongly, the following year is higher than the previous year. The province has many policies to attract businesses to invest in local projects and policies to support compensation and resettlement for people. However, the compensation, site clearance and resettlement have not yet met the requirements, especially in the key areas of industrial development in the province.
For that reason, the province determines that compensation, site clearance and resettlement are the key tasks of 2019 and the following years. So the province requires the political system to perform these tasks well. On March 29, 2019, the Standing Committee of the Provincial Party Committee issued the Conclusion No. 720-KL/TU on compensation, site clearance and resettlement in Duc Hoa, Ben Luc, Can Duoc, Can Giuoc, Thu Thua and Tan Tru districts and Tan An city.
After the conclusion, the implementation of these tasks has positive changes. Can Giuoc District have 108 land acquisition projects with a total area of more than 5,562 hectares and 10,700 affected households. In which, more than 50 projects have been approved by the District People's Committee; more than 7,300 households have been paid compensation with a total amount of more than VND 3,750 billion; and 1,823 hectares of land have been cleared and handed over to investors to implement the project.
According to the Chairman of Can Giuoc District People's Committee - Nguyen Tuan Thanh, after having the Conclusion No.720, the district has cleared nearly 60 hectares of land; paid compensation 436 households with a total amount of over VND 365 billion (mainly in key projects such as Provincial Road 830, Tan Tap - Long Hau Road, Long Hau 3 Industrial park, resettlement project in Long Hau and Tan Tap communes, etc.).
According to the Chairman of Can Duoc District People's Committee - Huynh Van Quang Hung, the compensation, site clearance and resettlement in the district have had many positive changes, especially after the Conclusion No.720 of the Standing Committee of the Provincial Party Committee. The district has compensated 902 out of 950 households in Provincial Road 830 project (phase 2) and 90 out of 90 households in 110kV Nam Tan Tap project (through the district). However, some projects have still faced difficulties, the district and related departments and agencies have tried to remove obstacles to early hand over the site to implement the project, contributing to the general development.
In Ben Luc district, these tasks have also achieved some positive results. According to the Vice-Chairman of Ben Luc District People's Committee - Le Thanh Ut, from the end of March 2016 until now, the district has paid compensation and supported 121 affected households with a total amount of VND 164 billion and recovered 15.5 hectares of land to hand over to investors.
However, there have been still certain limitations in performing tasks. In the coming time, the district continues to mobilize people to comply with the guidelines; strengthens coordination of relevant departments and agencies to inspect and urge investors to remove obstacles and difficulties.
Focusing on completing the task
After having the Conclusion No. 720 of the Standing Committee of the Provincial Party Committee, the compensation, site clearance and resettlement have had positive changes but there have been still certain difficulties and limitations in some localities.
The progress of many projects has not met the requirements for implementation time. The change has been not really synchronous. The low financial capacity of some investors has prolonged the project implementation time, caused waste of land and disturbing public opinion. Besides, the lack of consistency and strictness in coordination among state management agencies have affected the progress of land acquisition. Some regulations have been not suitable for the actual situation.
On the other hand, some households have agreed on the policy but they have not agreed on compensation prices. Violations in speculation, land transfer have caused a rise in land prices, "virtual land fever". It also affected compensation and land clearance seriously.
According to the Chairman of Can Giuoc District People's Committee - Nguyen Tuan Thanh, although there have been some initial results, the district has still faced some problems in compensation, site clearance and resettlement. In the coming time, Can Giuoc district will focus on mobilizing people to follow guidelines; coordinating with related departments and agencies to remove difficulties. At the same time, the district will review the prolonged projects to suggest the province to urge or withdraw if the capacity of the investor is weak.
Effective implementation of compensation, site clearance and resettlement contributes to the province's socio-economic development
According to Director of the Department of Natural Resources and Environment - Vo Minh Thanh, the Department has actively cooperated with departments, agencies and localities to implement the Conclusion No.720. Every month, the Department summarizes and reports to the Provincial People's Committee on the results of compensation, site clearance and resettlement in localities. Currently, these tasks has many positive changes compared to before.
The Department and relevant agencies advised the Provincial People's Committee to issue Decision No. 20/2019 / QD-UBND, dated April 24, 2016, on the adjustment and supplement of the 5-year land price list (2015-2019) to correspond to reality. Departments and local People's Committees have also guided the synchronous implementation of compensation and site clearance procedures to shorten the completion time. Besides, the Department has sent a document to the District People's Committee in publicizing the information of project panel such as investor, map, scale objectives, schedule, etc. so that to create convenience, openness and transparency in compensation as well as to enhance the responsibility of the investors and to create consensus of the people.
"In the coming time, the Department will strengthen coordination of related departments and localities to promptly remove obstacles and difficulties to promote compensation, land clearance and resettlement; advise the Provincial People's Committee on solutions to timely guide the implementation of this task more effectively" - Mr. Vo Minh Thanh added.

The Department of Planning and Investment, the Management Board of the Economic Zone and the Department of Industry and Trade focused on supporting investors to speed up the progress of site clearance and complete legal procedures to have at least 6 industrial parks and clusters to be put into operation from now until the end of the year.
In the first 6 months of 2019, industrial production grew steadily, contributing to the province's economic growth
In the first 6 months, the total state budget revenue in the province was VND 9,430 billion, reaching 68.9 percent of the Central budget estimate, reaching 68.6 percent of the estimate assigned by the provincial People's Council, increasing by 28.7 percent over the same period.
There are difficulties and limitations
Site clearance is considered as a key and breakthrough activity in 2019 but results are not meet the requirements. Some basic construction works and projects in industrial zones and clusters in Can Duoc, Can Giuoc and Duc Hoa districts, Tan An city, etc. have still faced difficulties.
In the first 6 months, the implementation of procedures for planning major investment projects was slow. Tan An city ring road and the road connecting Ho Chi Minh City - Long An - Tien Giang provinces were behind schedule. In addition, the management of land, urban order and environmental pollution control were not really good, especially in urban, residential areas, industrial zones and clusters of key economic areas of the province, said the Chairman Provincial People's Committee - Tran Van Can.
At this time, African swine fever negatively affected the livestock sector. Director of Department of Agriculture and Rural Development - Nguyen Thanh Truyen asked local authorities to actively prepare equipment to prevent the spread of epidemic. People should not repopulate to avoid pressure on the epidemic prevention.
It is necessary to drastically perform key tasks
According to the Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee - Tran Van Can, the economy of the province in the past 6 months maintained development and achieved a high economic growth thanks to the efforts of local authorities at all level, branches and localities. To achieve the target of economic growth in 2019 (9.6 percent), leaders of departments, agencies and localities continue to drastically implement the compensation, site clearance and resettlement under the direction of Provincial Standing Committee.
At the same time, specialized inspection must be strengthened in order to promptly detect and handle violations; proactively review and propose the slow and non-implementation of investment projects; and drastically handle unlicensed projects.
Department of Planning and Investment continues to assume responsibility and coordinate with relevant functional agencies and localities to review infrastructure investment projects of industrial zones and clusters as well as direct investment projects in the province to speed up progress of infrastructure investment.
At the meeting
Department of Agriculture and Rural Development focuses on preventing African swine fever; implementing the high-tech agricultural program in association with restructuring agriculture as planned; establishing typical cooperatives; and improving the rate of clean water use in the province to reach at least 40 percent in 2019.
Other departments and branches focus on monitoring and inspecting residential and urban projects in order to promptly handle violations; speeding up the planning of traffic routes that have investment policies; implementing key traffic works; strictly handling violations of traffic order and safety in road and waterway; and achieving and exceeding the target of State budget collection./.

Solar power project is invested by Hoan Cau Long An One Member Liability Limited Company with an area of about 1,000 hectares in Binh Hoa Nam commune, Duc Hue district, Long An province.
Director of Department of Industry and Trade - Le Minh Duc and leaders of Duc Hue district have just surveyed the project
Director of Department of Industry and Trade - Le Minh Duc, Secretary of Duc Hue District Party Committee - Pham Van Tran have just surveyed and worked with Hoan Cau Long An Company on solar power project.
The project is invested by Hoan Cau Long An Company with an area of about 1,000 hectares in Binh Hoa Nam commune, Duc Hue district. Accordingly, the company implemented each period with a total capacity of nearly 1,000 MW. From now until the end of 2019, the company will build a factory with a capacity of about 200 MW. Solar Park 1 and Solar Park 2 factories will be completed and will generate electricity with a capacity of 100 MW before the end of June 2019.
Representative of Hoan Cau Long An Company said: "At present, the construction of the piles, installation of ground-wire, the excavation of ditches for both factories reach 100 percent of workload completion rate. Solar Park 1 and Solar Park 2 factories reached 100 percent of the installation of the bracket, 20 percent of the installation of the solar panels. Besides, the set-up of Photovoltaics (PV) modules, inverter, etc. for the 2 factories was also focused."
In the implementation process, Hoan Cau Long An Company is always supported by the authorities. However, the company still faces difficulties in compensation and site clearance.
The total 110kV line of the project is nearly 19kilometers. Also, compensation are offered due to the construction of 82 pillars. Despite the active implementation of the plan, some locations in Thanh Loi commune, Ben Luc district have not been completed, thus leading to the prolongation of the compensation. In addition, disagreements amongst citizens arise in some locations where electric cables are stretched through residential land.
Therefore, it is suggested that functional agencies support the compensation and site clearance so as to promptly connect to the national grid as well as generate electricity before June 2019.
Director of the Department of Industry and Trade - Le Minh Duc required the department together with functional branches and local authorities to quickly solve problems for the investors. When being put into operation, the factory will help ensure operational safety, stabilize the national grid system, promote the socio-economic development of the province through direct service to local industrial parks, the development of clean energy sources and the provision of jobs for people, which contributes to the provincial budget./.
