According to the Ministry of Finance, total capital mobilised from G-bonds in the first eight months of this year reached nearly VND144.1 trillion (US$6.34 billion).
The amount was equal to 78.6% of the annual plan.
However, unlike the success of the G-bond mobilisation, the disbursement of the capital source in the period was very slow. Just VND2.46 trillion (US$108.37 million) was disbursed, equal to only 4.9% of the plan.
Due to the slow disbursement of public investment, including G-bond capital, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc had to ask authorities to take more drastic measures to rectify the late disbursement of investment capital for public projects.
Thirty ministries and provinces reported the slow disbursement of public investment, mainly due to the lack of proper direction by heads of ministries and localities, in addition to inadequacies of related procedures, slow land clearance and limited capacity of project contractors.
The PM noted that slow disbursement of public investment leads to a bottleneck in national economic growth and rising public debt.
