HA NOI (VNS)— Belgium has committed 4.3 million euros (US$5.9 million) of non-refundable official development aid to strengthen Viet Nam's planning reform for four years, the Belgian Embassy to Ha Noi announced yesterday.
A specific agreement for the project was signed last Friday by Deputy Minister of Planning and Investment Nguyen Chi Dung and Belgium Ambassador Angelet Bruno.
The project aims to improve the implementation of the socio-economic development plan for policies to support the poor and growth.
The four-year project will focus on preparing, monitoring and evaluating plans and budgeting by central, provincial and local authorities through improved legal framework, training courses and experience sharing.
