Official clarifies land title charges

Vientiane Times, February 06, 2015

Officials have admitted to possible duplicate charges for the registration of land rights when land owners need the relevant documents urgently. Officials from Savannakhet province clarified the issue when responding to queries raised through the National Assembly’s hotline call during the legislative body’s recent session.

One million land titles by 2015 ‘possible’ despite major funding gap: minister

Vientiane Times, 29 April 2014

Laos reaching its target of issuing one million land titles by 2015 “is possible”, Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Mr Noulin Sinbandith said on Friday. Work on giving out land titles began in 1997 and since then around 730,000 have been issued, according to the minister.

Mr Noulin spoke to local media at a meeting between the government cabinet, Vientiane Mayor and provincial governors that closed on Friday in Vientiane. He said it was possible to achieve the target of issuing one million land titles by 2015, which was set in the seventh national five-year socio-economic development plan (2011-2015) and the resolution of the ninth Party Congress.

Land title issuance still far below target

Vientiane Times, 13 June, 2013

The issuance of land titles continues to fall far short of the target set, says a senior government official, with changes in organisational structure and financial constraints cited as the two main reasons for the slow progress. The government has set a target to issue one million land titles over the five-year period from 2011-2015, but this looks ambitious considering a total of just over 100,000 titles have been issued over the past six years as calculated by Vientiane Times based on information provided by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MoNRE).
