I. Housing
bat_dong_sanCurrently, Quang Ninh province has a great housing land reserve. Many new urban areas have been formed, however, housing prices in these urban areas are often far higher than the average income of local people.

The demand for low-income housing is enormous. However, low-income people seem hardly able to afford an apartment especially in big cities, such as Ha Long Bay, Cam Pha, Uong Bi.

A medium-level apartment in residential areas is now trading at price of 1-1.5 billion VND, whereas, the average stable income of a skilled labor is about 50-60 million VND per year. Thus, the difference between the properties’ price and the average social income is about 28-30 times. This gap is beyond the limit of safe investment in residential real estate. This phenomenon has been nurtured from too much supply volume of luxury real estate together with the lack of buyers; as a result, crisis of overproduction of luxury real estate has been lasting for a long time. However, the real estate market completely lacks housing segment for low-income people.
