Director of Le Thanh Company said that the most difficult job of making cheap houses is administrative procedures. “We have applied for a social housing permit from July to 2016, yet we have not yet approved it. The decision has been made to allocate land and pays land use fees. However, the People’s Committee of Ho Chi Minh City asked for compensation and clearance. This is an unreasonable question, but it has made us deadlock for months, “Nghia said.
Similarly, Thien Phat Company also made 2,500 residences for workers in Linh Trung II Industrial Park. Each apartment here is 35sqm wide and for workers rent VND1.9 million / month with full facilities.
However, Thien Phat has a project that has applied for a social housing permit for seven years but is still not finished. Another project of Thien Phat in cooperation with Ho Chi Minh City Young People’s Volunteers in District 12 cannot be broken because of procedural difficulties.

However, the company has many projects in Binh Chanh and Binh Tan many years have not started because the procedures have not been completed. “We have clean land but the process is from the Department of Construction to the district and the Department of Architectural Planning, so the project is inactive,” said Tuan.
Leaders of enterprises with experience in developing social housing and affordable housing all said that the demand for living in cheap houses or high-end apartments are the same, from VND5 million/ sqm to get social housing.
“Houses under 20sqm should not be sold, will create slums and should be rented for easy management. If the tenant does not meet the demand, the house will be recovered. Ho Chi Minh City should do business for rent 12-20sqm for rent, “said Le Huu Nghia.

In order to develop a successful social housing, HCMC must have a public land fund for its implementation.

Vice Chairman of Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee wants businesses to reduce the maximum in terms of cost, lower prices for apartments. “Party Secretary Dinh La Thang found the company selling cement cheaper than the market. I am also contacting a steel company to negotiate the sale price of steel to build social housing, “Khoa said.

“HCMC will accept innovation and take risks to innovate. The Politburo allowed the issues to develop Ho Chi Minh City without breaking the law, then deployed immediately, “Thang said.
Secretary of HCM City Party Committee wants businesses to remove what needs to sit down to talk to each other specifically. The two sides should sit together to peel each issue to resolve the point. At present, HCMC still has a large area for enterprises to participate in social housing.
“Ho Chi Minh City will listen to the opinions of enterprises to perfect the policy mechanism. In order to have affordable housing, it is necessary to build up the supply chain of raw materials. If all the businesses join hands to reduce the price of raw materials, the reduction of house prices is not too difficult, “City Party Committee Secretary said.
