According to the committee, the construction of resettlements has been been slow, due to an enduring lack of apartments and land for relocated inhabitants.
During this session, Chairwoman of the HCMC People’s Council Pham Phuong Thao will recommend a self-nominee for the post of HCMC People’s Committee chief.
The council will give opinions on the committee’s reports on the adjustment of land zoning until 2010, orientation until 2020 and five-year land-use plan (2006-2010).
