Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnamese and Japanese experts shared experience in the sustainable management of small-scale technical projects funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) during a workshop in Hanoi on March 9.

Nakamura Tomoki, a representative from the Nippon Koei Vietnam Limited Company, said the regular exchange of information on the progress and outcome of a project as well as arising problems is essential.

This will help adjust Japanese projects to suit reality in Vietnamese localities, allowing more effective implementation, participants said.

Doctor Ngo Tung Duc from Hue University of Agriculture and Forestry suggested involving local people in feasibility study for small-scale projects, in order to mobilize local resources for project implementation.

Projects must also prove their efficiency to local development before they are expanded, panels said.

JICA has been carrying out 81small-scale technical projects in various fields in Vietnam since 2002 under the Japan Partnership Programme (JPP).

As part of the Japanese Government’s official development assistance (ODA) programme, JPP aims to support socio-economic development for developing countries, including Vietnam.-VNA
