VNGOVNet – PM Nguyễn Tấn Dũng agreed with the Hồ Chí Minh City People’s Committee to carry out the technical assistance project "Capacity improvement for HIFU and project managers" with nonrefundable aid of €1.5 million from the French Agency for Development (AFD).

The PM entrusted the HCMC People’s Committee to approve the project in line with the existing regulations.

AFD, through the Ministry of Finance, will provide the HCMC Investment Fund for Urban Development (HIFU) with a preferential loan of €30 million to finance projects in healthcare, education, environment, housing (for low-income people) projects in Hồ Chí Minh City. The loan has a term of 20 years, including 7 years in grace period.
