Meanwhile, the State budget collection approximated 1.64 trillion VND (nearly 70 million USD) by the end of May, equivalent to 31% of the target set by the Government and 91% of the value recorded in the same period last year.

Hoa Binh was assigned by the Government with more than 10 trillion VND in public investment capital from the State budget for this year. Of that sum, it has allocated over 5.49 trillion VND, or 54%, to projects. About 608.7 billion VND, or 6% of the plan, had been disbursed as of April 30.

He proposed the Ministry of Science and Technology, as well as other ministries and sectors, will continue paying attention to and handle Hoa Binh’s proposals early in order to help the province reach the socio-economic targets set by the Government and the Prime Minister.
