HA NOI (VNS) — Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has ordered contractors, investors and consultancy providers to ensure that the deadline for the completion of the National Assembly building is met.

He also asked them to ensure the project is of top quality and has absolute safety standards.

Inspecting the progress of the project in Ha Noi on Saturday, the prime minister also stressed the special and political significance of the building, adding that not much time was left for the handing over of the building, slated for the first half of October this year.

He was told that there were a number of problems in the project, including those regarding its architecture and the test-run of imported mechanical and electrical systems which will take time to fix if there's any failure.

He was informed that the project is proceeding as per the schedule.

Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai instructed contractors to work out back-up plans for proposals which could face delays.

Meanwhile, Construction Minister Trinh Dinh Dung asked the concerned companies to import equipment as planned and to test the machines as soon as they are available. — VNS
