Hanoi (VNA) – The Government will increase social housing so that more low-income earners can have their own houses, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has assured Hanoi dwellers.

He made the remark while visiting the social housing project of Dang Xa in Gia Lam district on December 6.

The project, invested by Viglacera Corporation, covers 69.6 hectares of land. It features 23 buildings with 3,162 flats.

It is accompanied by synchronous support facilities such as nurseries, kindergartens, sporting areas, restaurants, and supermarkets, along with greenery.

Listening to local residents’ opinions about their accommodation, PM Phuc said social housing construction is a major policy of the Party and State to help low-income people afford houses.

Following the fact-finding tour, the Government leader had a brief working session with the Hanoi People’s Committee and the investor, applauding their efforts to create a social housing model with civilised living conditions and sufficient facilities.

He asked the Ministry of Construction and the municipal authorities to learn from successes and shortcomings of the Dang Xa social housing project and others in Hanoi to expand affordable housing nationwide.

The PM is scheduled to chair a national teleconference on December 7 to review the development of social housing and set up orientations for this work in the time ahead.-VNA
