Prime Minister’s official message requests faster disbursement of public investment capital

Prim Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has just sent an official message No. 1942/CD-TTg asking ministries, sectors and localities concerned to implement the fast disbursement of public investment capital in 2019.
Up to now, there is still a total sum of VND 35,148 billion of the State Budget in 2019 having failed to be reported to the Prime Minister by the Ministry of Planning and Investment for capital allocation.
The disbursement of the first 7 month public investment capital of 2019 remains slow, fulfilling only 32.27% of the set target. This has made an impact on the economic growth and investment environment.
The main reason for this tardy disbursement comes from the subjective factor, particularly in management and implementation and the irresolute coordination among ministries and sectors.
To promote the progress of full disbursement of public investment capital in 2019, Resolution 01/NQ-CP on January 1, 2019 and Resolution 70/NQ-CP on March 8, 2019 will help to achieve this end.
The Ministry of Planning and Investment will take charge of this in coordination with the Finance Ministry and the agencies concerned to make clear this state of affairs and report it to the Prime Minister so that it is possible for the Government to carry on the timely capital allocation for the relevant projects.
Ministers, Chiefs of the ministerial agencies and the Chairmen of the Provincial Peoples’ Committees are held responsible to implement seriously the tasks pointed out in this official message./.
