Hanoi (VNA) - Vietnam has developed a fairly comprehensive legal and policy framework on land governance, said an official of the World Bank (WB) in Vietnam.

Kate Rickersey, a representative from the WB in Vietnam, made the remark at an online workshop co-hosted by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, the Party Central Committee’s Economic Commission and the WB in Vietnam on June 21.

As recent rapid urbanisation in Vietnam has resulted in remarkable changes in the pattern of land use and growth in the country, the country needs to define a land governance vision for the 2021-2045 period towards digitising land management services and ensuring rights for all land users, she noted.

According to Standing Vice Chairman of the Party Central Committee’s Economic Commission Cao Duc Phat, the workshop focused on reviewing achievements and pointing out shortcomings, as well as proposing new development directions to perfect mechanisms, policies and laws, towards removing obstacles to State management on land, contributing to the nation’s socio-political stability.

Delegates and experts said that in order to modernising its land management mechanism, Vietnam should make structural changes to strengthen its land management capacity in the direction of increasing efficiency and transparency./.
