NDO/VNA – Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh has decided to establish six working groups to accelerate the disbursement of public investment capital in 2021 at ministries, agencies and localities.

The working groups, headed by Deputy Prime Ministers and Ministers, are responsible for handling obstacles related to disbursement of public investment in 2021 in provinces and cities, ministries or agencies which recorded disbursement rates below 60 percent by October 31.

They are also tasked to identify the causes of the problems in the implementation of public investment projects, especially those using ODA capital and concessional loans from foreign investors as well as put forward solutions to speed up the disbursement and improve the efficiency of the capital.

The groups will also examine the responsibilities of leaders in directing and dealing with bottlenecks in the disbursement of public investment at each ministry, agency and locality.

The working groups are supposed to submit reports on the inspection results and recommendations (if any) to the Prime Minister within five working days from the date of completing the inspections while ministries, agencies and localities are requested to coordinate with the groups on the implementation of their duties.
