HCMC to change 684 ha of agricultural land to housing land

Ban Mai -

City to allocate over 102,000 ha of land for agriculture.

The Ho Chi Minh City Department of Natural Resources and Environment has submitted a land use plan for the 2021-2025 period to the municipal People’s Committee for approval.

The city will allocate 102,191 ha of land for agricultural activities and 106,750 ha for non-agricultural purposes.

It will therefore change 684 ha of non-agricultural land to housing land and 9,867 ha of agricultural land to non-agricultural land.

The city targeted changing 26,000 ha of agricultural land to non-agricultural land in the 2016-2020 period but could only fulfill 13-14 per cent of the target as a result of delayed projects and planning.
