HÀ NỘI — Deputy Prime Minister Trần Lưu Quang affirmed Việt Nam's efforts to speed up the projects funded by official development assistance (ODA) of Japan while receiving Executive Senior Vice President of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) Yamada Junichi in Hà Nội on Tuesday. Talking about the implementation of some ODA projects in Việt Nam, Deputy PM Quang said he has frequently checked the progress of the projects funded by Japanese ODA, affirming that the Vietnamese Government is working hard to address bottlenecks to accelerate these projects.
