The People’s Committee of Ho Chi Minh City has given the green light to a proposal on turning ten hectares of land in the Vietnam National University - Ho Chi Minh City (VNU-HCM) into a resettlement area.

The ten hectares of land is located in Linh Xuan Ward, Thu Duc District.

The area was originally meant for educational use, particularly for the construction of a dormitory, a foreign language faculty, and an educational faculty. 

Once renovated for the resettlement purpose, it is expected to be home to about 5,000 residents who have been displaced due to the implementation of the VNU-HCM project.

Furthermore, the municipal authorities will also consider reviewing and adjusting site-clearance and compensation policies for people currently living on this 10-hectare area, while separating the residential area from the VNU-HCM campus, so as to ensure their legitimate rights and interests and avoid disputes in the future.

The change is expected to have no influence on the premises of the existing faculties and member universities of the VNU-HCM.

Regarding the current context, the adjustment will also create favorable conditions for on-site resettlement for households in the project and accelerate the implementation of the VNU-HCM project, which has been carried out for some 20 years but has not been completed due to problems in compensation and site clearance so far.
