The Hanoi People's Committee will spend more than 141 billion VND (6.7 million USD) from its spare budget to upgrade dykes and irrigation systems in the city, said the municipal Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

The fund will be used to upgrade the dyke and irrigation system in the Thanh Oai, My Duc, Ung Hoa and Quoc Oai districts.

The Hanoi People's Committee has asked investors to use the fund properly in accordance with the State Budget Law.

The upgrade must ensure a good rate of progress and technological conditions. The investors must also report the work's progress to the People's Committee periodically.-VNA
