HCM City to tighten zoning management
The HCM City Department of Planning and Investment will cooperate
with relevant State agencies to make the city�s yearly, five-year and long-term
socio-economic development schemes and supervise their implementation into
practice, said a city leader.
These schemes must be suitable with the city�s real situation and
development plans of HCM City and the
southern focal economic zone approved by the central government, said Nguyen
Trung Tin, Vice Chairman of the HCM City People�s Committee.
The Department of Home Affairs will prepare the personnel plan
for these schemes to submit to the city government by the end of this year.
The city�s master plan for the 1996-2010 period, approved by the
Prime Minister in 1997, is now out of touch with the real situation. Therefore, the
city government has asked relevant State agencies to review and suggest changes
to the master plan for submission to the Prime Minister.
To date, development plans for 21 sectors have been completed,
focusing on the city�s key industries.
