History of Developments
 

On 29-4-1958, the Resolution of the period VIII National Assembly Session I by President Ho Chi Minh presided over the decision to establish the Architecture Ministry - now the Ministry of Construction. Since then, every year on 29-4 has become the traditional day of Construction in Vietnam.
 
Under the leadership of the Party and State to the efforts of all staff employees during the journey 55 years of development, construction industry has achieved many accomplishments contribute to the great victory of the country in the construction and national defense.
 

Achievements in 55 years of construction industry with the events in the history of national liberation and construction the socialist of our country. Especially after completion of the resistance war against American imperialism, Construction industry leading career rebuilt heart of the country. The results in this period was associated with rapid growth in quantity and quality of the construction team, striving sacrifice of generations and the direction of leaders predecessor of the construction industry.

The process of development, construction industry has achieved major results over the period as follows:

1. Period before 1975

Since 1954 peace was restored, the North is released, construction force actively involved in implementing the plan three years economic recovery from 1955 to 1957, three years of development planning and improvement of economic 1958 - 1960 and plan the first five years from 1961 to 1965. The next period is to build both directly fight the war by destruction of enemy air forces for North America, has more power slope Institute for Southern battlefields.

Once established, the leaders of Ministry of Construction quickly organized the whole event, team building staff. Held companies to build regional construction company as Hanoi, Hai Phong, Uong Bi, Thai Nguyen, Thanh Hoa, Nam Dinh, Vinh; other members of the school and some specialized units such as companies Assembling, Execution mechanized company, Transport company, the brick and tile factory, quarrying sand ...  On the basis of selective forces from the Youth, the sector team and force construction in the locality.

At the Ministry, in addition the Organices function, formed the scientific research organizations such as the Institute for Survey and Design, Institute of Planning, Design Bureau of industrial and civil ... In this period the Government has decided to move the Department of Home Affairs under the Ministry of Land and moved a division manager with the basis of material production to the General Chemical for Construction industry in charge. In 1973, for unified management of all state industry. The National Assembly and the Government has decided to merge the Ministry of Architecture and Construction Projects Committee of the State of the Ministry of Construction.

With forces and organizations like the branches of Construction directly executing hundreds of big projects, such as building small power plants in Lao Cai, Vinh, Uong Bi, Ninh Binh, Thac Ba, works chemical Tri Vietnam in industrial parks, the High - Soap - leaves, the Thai Nguyen Iron and Steel, Mechanical Factory medium scale, Finland Van Dien, Ha Bac Fertilizer, Lamp posters of Rang Dong, Det 8-3, Textile Minh Phuong, Nam Dinh Textile, Tea, Phu Tho, Tin Tuc Tinh, Hai Phong fish box, wood salt ...

During this period, the average annual increase 14% over the previous year.

On manufacturing of materials, has overcome many difficulties to promote production and continued development of production materials in place for the construction works. Some products have been mainly concentrated development such as investment in construction of blast furnace cement base, the base tile, stone tiles sold the world ... Construction materials such as cement, roofing sheets, tiles, stone has been restored and developed than two times the period of the war, have resolved some difficulties due to shortage of power supplies and materials water. Despite many efforts, but generally the basis of production materials also bring heavy manual, the product category of poor quality is not high, dependent on multiple sources of supplies and raw materials imported.

In the field of scientific research techniques, survey design works, planning design ... has made strides to meet the requirements of production, construction and urban development. has the same designers more civil and industrial projects. The process foundation, waterproofing process, as opposed to a foundation casto in Bim Son Cement Plant, Huangshi, anti-subsidence at La Thanh Hotel has good results, successfully applied new technology to produce high quality cement, cement strength sulfate, refractory bricks, acid resistant.

3. Period from 1981 to 1985

Period 1981-1985 was a period there are many difficulties in the construction and national defense. Border situation and the island has many complicated development, natural disasters to occur on a large scale in North and Central, sources of aid from socialist countries increasingly reduced, the production facilities in the country met more difficult due to lack of spare parts and materials techniques. Simultaneously during this period, our country is focused on completion of the socialist renovation in southern provinces, continue to improve socialist production relations in the country.

6. Period from 1996 to 2000 and from 2000 to present

After 10 years of renovation, construction industry have created the power to step in and perform period of industrialization and modernization Resolution Eighth Party Congress set forth. This is a period many changes of substance in the development of the sector. Many policies are the focus construction in this period has created quite a uniform legal framework lí. The implementation of strong planning, strategies, development orientation has contributed to raising the efficiency of management at the macro-sector. Force production was rearranged. Corporations, the company has established strong and strengthening, continue to make intensive investment in technological innovation, increase production capacity, competitiveness of products in industry, preparing the premise advanced to regional economic integration and international in the next period. Although the impact of financial crisis and monetary consequences of natural disasters in three years from 1998 to 2000, growth has slowed, but the average growth rate from 1996 to 2000 period of 5 years industry Industrial materials reached about 16.9%, higher than the growth of the industry average in the country about 13%. This period, private sector investment cement was about 16,900 billion for the cement kiln line and dial 1740 billion to complete the program of 3 million tonnes of blast furnace cement. Cement production capacity from 6.8 million tons in 1996 to 15.53 million tons in 2000. Year 1996 - 1998 to 2.74 million tons imported 2.27 million tons of cement and clinker, consuming 198 million, by 1999 the balance of the demand and domestic production. Field produced ceramic tiles and granite tiles in the construction industry has the highest growth. End of 1995 has two factories with a capacity of 2.1 million m2, the total capacity in 2000 reached nearly 48.2 million m2, increasing about 23 times. Glass construction increased 3.5 times. Production capacity of sanitary ware to date has reached 2 million products per year, increasing 5.4 times compared with 1996.
