The construction industry of Yen Bai province has successfully completed all assigned tasks in recent years, thus contributing positively to local development. State construction management in Yen Bai has experienced many positive changes. The first tool for urban development is based on planning. The focus on regional planning always goes one step ahead.
Urban planning, one of the prerequisites for attracting investment and upgrading infrastructure, has been a focus for Yen Bai construction industry over time. The province’s urbanization rate is estimated at 22.9% and all urban areas have complete construction planning. In areas of important significance to local socioeconomic development, planning is divided into sectoral planning. All 152 communes complete master planning. 87.5% of urban population have access to commercial clean water. 89.5% of municipal solid waste is collected and treated. In 2015-2018, the master planning for all 13 urban areas was completed (Yen Bai City; Yen Binh Town, Yen Binh district; Lien Son Town in Van Chan district). Some big urban areas such as Yen Bai City and Nghia Lo Town have their planning adjusted to add outer spaces for future urban expansion.
Planning and planning management, urban development, housing management and real estate market have seen remarkable changes. The management of technical infrastructure has been focused to ensure good service of people's life and create an increasingly modern urban face. People are informed of construction order management and laws on this issue.
To have that result, the construction sector of Yen Bai province has changed its innovative thinking and actions in State management. The department promptly executed State guidelines and policies and advised the Provincial People’s Committee to issue instructive documents detailing the implementation of specialized regimes and policies.
The Yen Bai Department of Construction has renewed its administration and direction; thoroughly grasped instructions of the Provincial Party Committee, the Provincial People’s Council and the Provincial People’s Committee; and fully and timely issued and directed the implementation of programs and action plans. The department continued to enhance State management, maintain administrative discipline, changed working methods, and enhanced working responsibility of public employees. It matched its working regimes with State and Party regulations and renovated them to catch up with new changes. It also assigned tasks, defined clear responsibility and progress of every work designated to every leader, unit and individual.
Institutional reform has been further improved. The Department of Construction actively advised the Provincial People’s Council and the Provincial People’s Committee to develop and issue important legal documents such as regulations on construction planning, regulations on construction permit management, regulations on construction prices, instructions on construction order management, regulations on construction quality management, regulations on construction investment project management, and regulations on quality management and construction maintenance.
As for fields relating to individuals and businesses such as construction permit procedures, task appraisal and project planning appraisal, planning consultation and construction and architecture consultation, the Department of Construction reduced record components and procedures to facilitate them to complete their administrative works with the lowest expense and the shortest time.
