Dong Nai to build 625 housing units for the needy in 2015

The southern province of Dong Nai will complete construction on and hand over 625 housing units worth nearly 500 billion VND (23.1 million USD) to local disadvantaged and people who rendered services to the nation by the end of this year.

Head of the Provincial Department of Construction Nguyen Thanh Lam said the locality has finished 23 projects and is working on 50 others covering 400 hectares.

Simultaneously, the province has reclaimed 57 sluggish social housing projects, he said.

So far, 8 of 22 projects to provide accommodations for students have been completed, housing more than 4,000 students, said Lam, adding that in the past two years, 960 houses were built and upgraded for people who rendered services to the nation at a cost of 24 billion USD (1.42 billion USD).

However, he revealed that nearly 760 preferential policy beneficiary families still need improved housing.

At a meeting on May 6 with local departments and localities to seek measures to speed up progress of the projects, Vice Chairman of the Dong Nai People’s Committee Tran Van Vinh asked districts to make public all available land resources for social housing to call for more investors.

He also urged the provincial Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs to make sure all Heroic Mothers residing in the locality benefit from the projects.
