Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith has stressed that the government’s policy on land use should add value to land and benefit everyone in the country.
Mr Thongloun discussed the policy with officials from various sectors and local authorities at a national meeting held last week.
“We must make land generate additional value and provide benefits for the state, every family, and everyone in urban and rural areas,” he said.
Mr Thongloun was referring to the country’s 236,800 square kilometres of land which he said should be used as the basis for social and economic development, stressing that everyone could be its owner, participate in its management and benefit from it.
