At the meeting, representatives of the Central Citizen Board of the Government Inspectorate informed the residents on the Notice of the Prime Minister's conclusion on the settlement of citizens' complaints related to the project of Thu Thiem new urban area.

Accordingly, the Prime Minister assigned the Government Inspectorate to inspect, review and clarify the contents of the people's complaints on the land planning, land recovery, compensation and support for resettlement.

The board would report the outcome of the meeting to the Prime Minister before July 15 as requested by the PM.

The Government and central agencies have paid close attention to the Thủ Thiêm land dispute, but many problems could arise during the process of resolving the dispute, which needs the direction of the PM.

At the meeting, some people shared the history of the case, showed their empathy and willingness to cooperate with the new leadership of the city People’s Committee to solve the problem.

Recently, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc ordered Ho Chi Minh City authorities and relevant agencies to quickly settle the land disputes involving the Thu Thiem new urban area.

For many years, residents in the project area have been submitting complaints about land reclamation and site clearance for construction of the project to the city and central governments.
