Ministry asked to speed up public investment disbursement
The Government has asked the Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI) to focus on removing difficulties and speeding up the progress of public investment disbursement.
In Resolution No. 50/NQ-CP issued recently, the Government requested the MPI to promptly finalise the allocation and adjustment of public investment plan, while cutting down capital for projects with slow disbursement to increase capital for other projects, and strengthening online bidding.
Each ministry, sector and localities must form a working group to inspect and define the responsibility of individuals and collectives in slow disbursement of public investment, according to the resolution.
The Government also asked the MPI to work with other ministries, sectors and localities to review and update the growth scenarios for each quarter and the whole year as well as each sector, thus giving suitable directions.
Heads of ministries, ministry-level agencies and the People’s Committees of centrally-run cities and provinces were asked to give specific solutions to existing problems and call for the involvement of the whole political system in completing the set tasks and create breakthrough in their area and locality.
