France Extends Vietnamese Reform Program

France will provide 100 million euros (USD135 million) for the extension of a public investment reform program in Vietnam, Voice of Vietnam reports. The loan will support the second phase of the World Bank-supported program, which seeks to improve public management of funding for Vietnam’s infrastructure projects. The first phase of the project was completed in 2009, funded by a USD500 million loan from the World Bank.
