The Ministry of Planning and Investment stated that the disbursement of public investment in 7 months was much higher than the same period in previous years. This is partly due to the comprehensive renovation of public investment legal framework and drastic guidance of the Government.
However, the progress of disbursement of the state budget investment plan for the first 7 months is still low. Minister of Planning and Investment Nguyen Chi Dung emphasized the demand to stimulate the economy, and promote the public investment disbursement. Public investment in key infrastructure projects helps create a sustainable growth platform in the future and increase the competitiveness of the economy, informed Bidding News.
The Vietnamese government targeted to disburse all public investment planned for this year as well as the public investment sums transferred from previous years to accelerate post-pandemic economic recovery. This means about VND 630 trillion (USD 27 billion) must be disbursed this year. The Ministry of Finance reported that about VND160 trillion (USD 6.9 billion) was disbursed in the first half of this year.
