Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has approved the list of national projects calling for outside funding from now to 2020.
The list consists of 127 projects divided into five groups: technical infrastructure; social infrastructure; agriculture; agricultural preservation and processing; and manufacturing & service.
The total capital called for by these projects is over $58 billion. Several individual projects are worth billions of USD, such as Khanh Hoa Province’s Nam Van Phong refinery in the Nam Van Phong Economic Zone, which needs up to $8 billion. For that project, foreign investors can contribute up to 75 percent of the capital.
