Despite a number of difficulties, preparations for the project have been basically completed, he said, expressing his wish that in the coming time, the WB, relevant ministries and agencies, and participating localities will increase coordination and experience sharing in the implementation of the project.

The project will be carried out in four central coastal cities namely Dong Hoi in Quang Binh province, Quy Nhon in Binh Dinh province, Nha Trang in Khanh Hoa province, and Phan Rang – Thap Cham in Ninh Thuan province, with a total capital of over 273 million USD funded by the WB.

The 2017-2022 project includes four components: sanitation infrastructure expansion, urban connectivity improvement, compensation and site clearance, and implementation support and institutional reform. Its main objective is to improve environmental sanitation and locals’ health through completing technical infrastructure, creating urban scenery and raising public awareness of environmental protection.

At the conference, participants discussed issues relating to difficulties facing localities in the implementation of the project such as investment and disbursement plans, compensation and site clearance.

Localities were urged to work hard to overcome difficulties so that priority contracts for Quy Nhon, Nhan Trang and Dong Hoi subprojects will be signed in January 2019 and for Phan Rang – Thap Cham subproject in March next year.
