CÀ MAU — The authority of Cà Mau Province is taking measures to speed up the upgrading project for the urban area of Cà Mau City.
Phan Hoàng Vũ, chairman of Cà Mau Province’s People Committee, said that 23 Official Development Assistance-funded (ODA) projects in the first stage and 13 projects in the second stage were currently underway.
Seventeen projects in the first stage have been completed.
In the first stage of the upgrading project, Cà Mau used ODA to build resettlement areas for residents, and upgraded urban areas and drainage systems.
Cà Mau has disbursed VNĐ665 trillion (US$28 trillion) from ODA and VNĐ452 trillion (US$19 trillion) of reciprocal capital from the Government, including VNĐ130 billion for site clearance and compensation.
To speed up the projects, Cà Mau’s urban upgrading management board is working with authorities and related units to disseminate information to households to encourage them to relinquish land for the upgrading project.
As many as 2,403 households out of 2,433 households have agreed to hand over land to the project management board.
The province has asked the Government to invest more than VNĐ190 billion (US$8 million) to speed up implementation of the second stage of the projects. — VNS
