DA NANG (VNS) — Da Nang municipal authorities plan to raise VND1,100 billion (US$52.3 million) by issuing bonds this year for key infrastructure projects in the city.
The announcement was made at a conference on local authority bonds held last Wednesday by the Ha Noi Stock Exchange and Da Nang People's Committee.
According to the committee's standing vice-chairman Vo Duy Khuong, the purpose of bond issuance is to mobilize capital for socio-economic development in the city.
The projects in need of funding from bonds include Rong (Dragon) Bridge, Nguyen Van Troi – Tran Thi Ly Bridge, the High-tech zone, and Hoa Xuan Stadium.
