Currently, the Ministry is focusing on coordinating with localities to plan the areas where houses can be built.
According to Minister Maggiotti, the lands in Argentina are all privately owned. In order to be built, they must ask permission from the government, so the price of land is quite different, people have to buy the lands with the price that could be five times higher than the land price set by the state.

In the end, affirming the great potentials of cooperation between the two ministries, in the coming time, Minister Nguyen Thanh Nghi suggested that the two sides should strengthen the cooperation and exchange to find out areas of mutual interest and benefit in the future collaborative development.
