Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has recently ratified a technical assistance project worth 1 million USD to develop irrigation systems in the central and northeastern Red River Delta region.

Of the total investment, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) will offer 800,000 USD in non-refundable aid.

The Prime Minister has assigned the State Bank of Vietnam to work with the ADB to sign an agreement on the technical assistance project, while the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development is tasked to finalise related documents and partner with localities to deploy the project.

The two-year project will be implemented in the four provinces of Bac Ninh, Bac Giang, Vinh Phuc and Phu Tho. /.
