The Asian Development Bank (ADB) pays special attention to funding transport and environment projects in Vietnam and Hanoi in particular.

This remark was made by Ayumi Konishi, ADB Country Director in Vietnam , at a meeting with Vice Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Hoang Manh Hien on May 24.

During the talks, Hien proposed a number of transport and safe water projects as priorities in cooperation with ADB.

The projects cover urban transport development, focusing on management capacity enhancement for Hanoi’s railway sector and technical assistance for working out a project for the urban railway route No 3, as well as the sustainable development of the city’s transport sector, with priority to be given to building modern parking areas and developing environmentally friendly buses.

A project on delivering safe water from Da River waterworks to Hanoi’s western districts was also included in the list.

Ayumi Konishi pledged that ADB would actively coordinate with municipal agencies to prepare for the projects
