The Saigon Times

Back to top
The financial mechanisms are quite open compared to the current BOT projects proposed by the Ministry of Transportation (Transport) and the Ministry of Finance approved that the North-South highway project be aimed at investors who have real capacity, especially foreign investors, to prevent risks. Foreign investors are the main target of the Government's invitation to participate in bidding for 20 component projects under phase 1 of the North-South Expressway project. Therefore, the Government has decided to propose favorable conditions on financial mechanism: to raise prices right in the feasibility report on projects and contracts instead of adjusting prices according to the regulations of the Ministry of Finance; this price does not change during execution.
