Speaking at the meeting, Ha urged Lang Son make a report on difficulties hindering the implementation of the Land Law, and submit the document to the Government in order to seek timely solutions.

The MoNRE will provide consultations for the Government in amending relevant decrees or propose the National Assembly revise relevant laws, making them match the reality, such as regulations on the change of land use purposes, land reclamation and land use right certification, he said.

The minister asked Lang Son to pay attention to infrastructure, especially transport and telecommunications, and flood prevention during planning, given the complex development of climate change.
