The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Construction Ministry co-hosted a training conference for the project “Strengthening capacity of cost estimation, contract management, quality and safety of construction works” in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho on June 23.
The project was launched in April 2015 and is scheduled to last till March 2018.
According to JICA, Vietnam has maintained sustainable economic growth over the past years with the construction of major infrastructure works. However, accidents at construction sites and conflicts during project implementation still occurred due to limited management.

Head of the Construction Ministry’s Department of International Cooperation Pham Khanh Toan said the event is expected to improve the use of public investment in construction and capacity of parties concerned, issues regarding construction bidding such as dumping and fraud.
