PM asks quarters to accelerate public investment disbursement

Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh chaired an online meeting on promoting disbursement of public capital on September 28.


Speaking at the conference, the Prime Minister said that around 500 trillion VND (nearly 22 billion USD) has been disbursed so far, equivalent to over 47% of the plan for 2021.

According to the Ministry of Planning and Investment, up to now, there are only 4 ministries and 11 localities gaining a disbursement rate of over 60%. In particular, 15 ministries, central agencies and 23 localities have returned a total investment public capital of nearly 22 trillion VND to the Government.

The government leader pointed out that, in addition to the objective reasons caused by the COVID-19 epidemic, the subjective reasons are still the main ones.

As the COVID-19 pandemic is causing many socio-economic difficulties, accelerating the disbursement of public investment capital is an important and urgent task, Chinh stressed.

Concluding the conference, he asked relevant quarters to speed up the disbursement in an effort to reach 95 percent of the plan for this year./.
