The Ministry of Construction (MOC) and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) Project Team jointly organized a training workshop on November 17 on the management of construction projects within the scope of the Technical Cooperation Project.
The training workshop “Capacity Enhancement in Cost Estimation, Contract Management, Quality and Safety in Construction Investment Projects in Viet Nam (CCQSP)" aimed to share the Project’s outputs and focal points relating to Vietnam’s law and regulations on construction at the presence of representatives from concerned state authorities at both central and provincial levels, Project Management Units (PMUs), contractors and consultants, etc.

The same workshops will also be held in Da Nang, Can Tho and Ho Chi Minh City respectively on November 24th, November 30th and December 1st.
The JICA-funded project, which has been implemented by MOC and JICA team, aims at enhancing capacity of staff in MOC and related organizations which directly involve in construction projects, with an ultimate goal that construction projects in Viet Nam are managed in accordance with international standards and regulations for management of public construction projects.
After more than 2 years and a half of implementing the Project with all outputs successfully realized, the training workshops focus on three main outputs of the Project including Quality Management, Safety & Environment Management and Cost Estimation. These outputs are expected to help improve the implementation of public investment and thus improve its effectiveness.
Viet Nam has maintained sustainable economic growth in recent years and implemented a large number of major infrastructure development projects. However, due to insufficient project management and inadequate quality and safety management in construction works, many construction accidents have been recorded.
In addition, construction contracts have been insufficiently managed leading to numerous disputes, which therefore have obstructed the smooth implementation of construction projects. To address the issues, the Government of Viet Nam had requested JICA to implement the Project. CCQSP has been then prepared and implemented since April 2015 for three years.PSNews
