Verification of the two projects, Chairman of the Economic Committee of the National Assembly Vu Hong Thanh said that some opinions believe that the Government’s proposal to invest in two projects according to the scale of the road surface divergence of 17m and 19.75m is not enough. In line with Vietnamese standards for highways, at the same time, investment of this scale will not have an emergency stop lane, but only an emergency stop, which is difficult to ensure traffic safety and easy. Congestion occurs, reducing investment efficiency… In addition, it is necessary to review and reduce the maximum number of intersections on the whole route… to ensure operational efficiency, traffic safety and overall optimization. investment level of 2 projects.

At the same time, because component projects will be assigned to localities to implement, it may lead to different organization of each agency, failure to ensure uniformity and consistency, and may lead to an increase in total cost. investment level of projects.
Therefore, the Economic Committee proposed to assign a competent and experienced agency to carry out the appraisal for component projects of the two projects.
Regarding the mechanism and policies of the Belt 4 project, including allowing the state capital to participate up to 66% of the total investment, the Economic Committee said that the project has a preliminary total investment. very big. Therefore, if applying according to Clause 2, Article 69 of the Law on Investment under the PPP method, the financial plan will not be feasible and it will be difficult to attract investors to invest in the Project. Therefore, the majority of opinions agree with this proposal.
Regarding the mechanism and policies of the Ho Chi Minh City Ring 3 project, the Economic Committee agreed with the policy that the project, after being completed and put into use, should collect fees to recover the investment capital for the project. central and local budgets.
