Due to the difficulty of site clearance and relocation of some utility projects, the speed of disbursement of projects was only about 50%.
HCMC People’s Committee has reported to the Office of Government and other ministries on the situation of receiving and using ODA and preferential loans in the second quarter of 2015.
Accordingly, HCMC is monitoring 15 projects with ODA capital with total investment capital of nearly VND110,000 billion. However, in the first 6 months of 2015, ODA disbursement of projects was still slow, reaching only 44% of the planned capital. Specifically, the infrastructure sector reached 43.5%, the sector reached 58.3%.
The reason is that the speed of disbursement is low due to the compensation of land clearance, relocation of utility works are difficult. The construction of some packages is difficult due to the division of traffic, construction in narrow areas and the handling of underground works. In addition, some projects have to adjust the design to suit the situation as well as handle some situations in the bidding.
For example, the Ho Chi Minh City Water Environment Improvement Project in the Can Huu – Ben Nghe – Song Doi – Te 2 canal was disbursed with 10% ODA compared to the signed loan agreement.
The project of urban railway No.1 from Ben Thanh to Suoi Tien disbursed 49%. Project No.2 Ben Thanh – Tham Luong disbursed 6%. Meanwhile, Ho Chi Minh City Urban Upgrading Project disbursed 97.3%.
