When the deadline for using agricultural land comes, farmers will be allowed to continue using land, stated the Government Office’s Chair at a press conference yesterday.
Mr. Vu Duc Dam.
In accordance with the Land Law 2003, farmers are allocated with land for 20 years for farming, aquaculture and for 50 years for planting forest and perennials. After that, they will have to return the land to the State for re-allocation.
However, Chairman of the Government’s Office - Vu Duc Dam - told a press conference on March 6 that farmers who obey the law in using land and still want to use land will be permitted to continue using it.
Dam also said that if the law is amended, land would not be revoked for re-allocation.
The official said that the Government would assign the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment and provincial authorities to tell people about the news so farmers would feel secure in using land.
Dam said that the government had asked local governments and relevant agencies to review the implementation of the Land Law. The Central Party Committee is discussing this issue, Dam added.
“The government clearly understands the significance of land to Vietnamese people. Therefore, though the Land Law is under review, the guideline is not revoking and reallocating land,” Dam stressed.
The message was delivered at the time that many people asked to amend the Land Law, especially after the land withdrawal case in Tien Lang district of the northern port city of Hai Phong.
Earlier, former Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Dang Hung Vo said that the biggest problem of the current Land Law is the land-use duration. The best way is abolishing the duration.
Former Minister of Justice Nguyen Dinh Loc also said that the Tien Lang case is a big lesson on land-related policies. According to a source from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, the ministry will organize a meeting today, March 7, to make public information on land management.
