Representatives from the Asian Development Bank met with Hanoi’s Municipal People’s Committee on May 29 to discuss its credit programme for the capital during the 2012-2016 period.

Hanoi has registered developing an urban railway and upgrading the city’s water supplies as the projects it has prioritised for ADB loans from 2013 to 2015.

The ADB has agreed to provide 1 million USD in non-refundable aid for the city’s urban railway No. 3 and 1.5 million USD in non-refundable aid on technical support for a feasibility study on the No. 3 railway line, which will run from Hanoi’s main railway station to Hoang Mai.-VNA
