Under the decision, Agreement No.3634-VIE and Agreement No.3635-VIE (COL) related to the project will be amended on the basis of the Government’s request to extend the implementation time to September 30, 2025.

The ADB had committed to providing loans of 52 million USD (Agreement No.3634-VIE) and 97 million USD (Agreement No.3635-VIE (COL) for the project.
