Overview of the meeting

The cause of difficulties and problems is due to a number of unsynchronized legal provisions; the coordination mechanism between agencies and units is not effective, many problems have not been dealt with radically and definitively such as site clearance. There are still many inadequacies in planning and implementation, especially capacity in appraisal, inspection, supervision, construction, etc. leading to slow progress, slow disbursement, and slow settlement.
At the meeting, departments, branches and localities discussed solutions to overcome difficulties and problems related to a number of specific projects in the area.
