Next year, Vietnam will continue improving the efficiency of public investment use; speeding up the implementation of key investment projects with focus on highways, seaports, digital infrastructure, and important databases; expanding investment in innovative start-ups, important national and inter-regional projects.
Attention will be paid to complete construction on roads along the coast, transited from 2016-2020 to 2021-2025, and start work on several urgent and important projects that have positive influences on the economic recovery and development process in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, and urgent projects as regulated by the Law on Public Investment.
According to the Ministry of Planning and Investment, in order to remove difficulties in public investment-related institutions, mechanisms and policies, the Government issued a Decree dated August 16, 2021 on amending and supplementing a number of articles of Decree No. 97/2018/ND-CP dated June 30, 2018 on on-lending ODA and foreign preferential loans of the Government.
