Of the total, more than 172.56 trillion VND has been informed to ministries and agencies so far to complete 264 tasks and projects, of which 94 have investment procedures done, according to Deputy Minister of Planning and Investment Tran Quoc Phuong.

The projects were reviewed to ensure their observance to regulations of the Investment Law, he continued.

In its proposal sent to the N.A. Standing Committee, the Government also suggested the committee issue a resolution on the allocation of development investment under the socio-economic recovery and development program, as well as adjustments and supplements to the investment plan of the central budget for 2022.

As of August 28, 16 ministries, centrally-run agencies and localities had yet completed the disbursement.
