The PM has issued Directive No. 03/CT-TTg requesting relevant ministries, sectors and localities to accelerate the development of affordable housing.

The move aims to basically finalize the goals concerning affordable housing development set out in the national housing development strategy until 2020, with a vision to 2030.

Improving housing quality and reducing housing cost

Regarding the tasks and solutions to develop affordable houses and accommodations for workers, the PM asked the chairpersons of the municipal and provincial People’s Committees to create favorable conditions, concerning land and administrative procedures, in order to call on property developers, businesses using a large number of laborers and the people to invest in developing affordable housing, particularly accommodations for employees at industrial zones, economic zones and industrial clusters in the locality.

The government leader also insisted on improving the quality of affordable housing and developing the suitable housing product structure and ensuring the essential technical and social infrastructure in terms of transport, healthcare, education and culture of affordable housing construction projects in urban areas and at industrial zones.

In an effort to enhance the quality of affordable housing, the PM told the Ministry of Construction to issue additional standards and criteria on affordable housing; research the application of scientific and technical advances and new materials to reduce housing costs; develop the suitable housing product structure; ensure the essential technical and social infrastructure in terms of transport, healthcare, education and culture of affordable housing construction projects in urban areas and at industrial zones; and propose measures and resources to radically deal with the issue of anti-flood houses for needy households in the central region.

Enabling businesses and people to participate in developing affordable housing

The PM also requested the People’s Committees of provinces and centrally run cities to review and revise the urban and industrial zone planning, aiming to ensure the sufficient land fund for the development of affordable housing. Planning on affordable housing and accommodations for workers and students must be part of the planning for new urban areas, industrial zones and educational institutions, he insisted.
