The people’s committee said that the city’s lowest compensation price is VND40.6 millions (US$2,000) per square meter, which is higher than prices in earlier real estate transactions in the area.

According to the Government’s Degree 84, the city and District 1 People’s Committees decision to revoke lands is legal and the investor Vincom does not need to negotiate with residents over rates of compensation.

As a result, the City People’s Committee has asked residents to evacuate soon so that site clearance could be completed as scheduled.
