There was a training seminar in the central city of Da Nang recently as part of a Japan-funded project.
As the economy grows, Vietnam is engaging in numerous big infrastructure projects. However, weak management of construction quality and labour safety have led to several accidents and disputes that slowed down construction progress and affected the quality.
This project was to improve budgeting, contract and risk management capacity of construction projects in Vietnam.
The project is sponsored by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) to help Vietnam’s project management meet international standards.
Kenichi Yamamoto, deputy chief representative of JICA Vietnam expressed at the seminar that the project will bring significant benefits to both Vietnamese and Japanese enterprises.
