The final draft law comprises 16 chapters and 263 articles. Compared to the earlier draft that was publicised to collect public opinions, it has 40 new articles, and sees 13 ones being removed.
After studying the public’s comments and suggestions, the compilation board draft law revises the entire content of Article 79 in the direction that the State takes land to implement socio-economic development projects for the benefit of the nation and the society in order to promote land resources, improve the efficiency of land use, develop socio-economic infrastructure in a modern direction, implement social welfare policies, protect the environment and preserve cultural heritages.
It also supplements regulations on decentralisation of authority to acquire land to district-level People's Committees, regardless of whether land users are organisations or individuals, except for the case of land taking for national defence and security.
The draft stipulates in details principles to decide land prices.
