Vo Nguyen Phong, Director of the Hanoi Department of Construction, said that solutions to effectively and synchronously develop the real estate market are also the department’s priority.
The capital is expected to issue a plan to inspect the compliance with the Law on Real Estate Business and the Law on Housing by residential construction projects that are eligible for listing properties, promulgating Document No. 1153 on strengthening the management of the real estate market in the city.

Wrapping up the conference, Nguyen Ngoc Tuan, Deputy Secretary of the municipal Party Committee, Chairman of the Hanoi People's Council, and Head of the Steering Committee for Program 03, emphasized that the Steering Committee has implemented very specific work, clearly assigning tasks and completing the legal basis for Housing development.
He asked leaders of departments, branches, districts, towns to accelerate residential construction in a substantive and drastic way, especially in conditions of safe adaptation to the pandemic
Tuan requested the municipal Department of Construction to devise specific targets of the program as well as clearly define tasks. In addition, the districts need to review and re-evaluate all indicators to identify problems and difficulties, and propose their removal, ensuring progress and quality of the projects.
