Feb. 11 (Bloomberg) -- Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has asked for a nationwide review of land management procedures and said local authorities made mistakes in a land acquisition case in the northern port city of Haiphong, according to a statement on the government’s website.

Local authorities in cities and provinces should “focus on the proper settlement of complaints of citizens” in land-acquisition cases, Dung said in the statement, dated yesterday. Responsible ministries were asked to review land use and management regulations and propose amendments to laws “to suit the actual situation,” according to the statement.

Land management procedures in the country are inadequate, with many cases related to land use not being resolved in a timely manner, Dung said.
