Successive policies of the Government of
Vietnam for economic reform and modernization have helped
Vietnam to emerge as one of the world's fastest growing
economies. The report provides continued recommendations on
improving land policies to ensure efficiency of their
practical implementation and to target at both economic
development and social sustainability. Policies with regard
to voluntary benefits sharing, promoting the participation
of communities and social organizations, strengthening the
dialogue between the government and the people, creating
real consensus across parties related to investment
projects, enhancing inspection works by upper level
administrative authorities over their lower level ones are
analyzed and specifically recommended in this policy note.
The policy note includes six chapters: chapter one, is the
general introduction of this document; chapter two, focuses
on analyzing the prevailing land legislation system for land
conversion and the process of land legislation construction
to determine its insufficiency issues; chapter three, mainly
analyzes the practical implementation of land conversion in
Vietnam, based on the analyses of opinions from provincial
leaders, investors and affected people; chapter four,
carries out analyses of the international and domestic
experiences on land acquisition/conversion measures to find
the possibilities of application to Vietnam; and chapter
five, suggests land policies, legal regulations, and
implementation procedures to continuously reform the land
acquisition/conversion measures in Vietnam. The policy note
ends with the last chapter, which recommends some issues for
further studies in the World Bank Vietnam study program on
land policies improvement in the upcoming years.
