The Government has agreed in principle to a project to build an urban railway route in Ho Chi Minh City , which uses Spain ’s preferential ODA loans of the Spanish Government’s official development assistance (ODA).

In his official document No. 334/TTg-QHQT, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung required the municipal People’s Committee to guide the project owner to make a feasibility study on a metro route from Bay Hien cross road to the Sai Gon bridge.

The Ministry of Planning and Investment and relevant agencies were asked to pay attention to organisation and implementation of the project.

The Ministry of Planning and Investment was assigned to officially inform the Spanish side about the project inline with the agreement under the financial cooperation programme between the two governments./.
