The Cao Bo-Mai Son section plays an important role in the North-South expressway as it connects economic and political centres in the key northern economic zone. Construction of the project started in December 2019 and was completed on schedule.

Addressing the event, PM Chinh affirmed that the Party and State identified infrastructure development, including transport infrastructure, as one of three strategic breakthroughs. The State mobilises all resources to invest in infrastructure, but there are focal points, including the eastern North-South expressway.

He hailed the efforts by administrations at all levels of Ninh Binh and Nam Dinh provinces as well as relevant agencies in overcoming difficulties to complete the project with high quality.

The PM requested ministries and agencies to continue accomplishing necessary procedures to ensure the project’s effectiveness.

Lessons should be drawn from the project’s implementation so that other projects would be carried out with better results, fulfilling the target of having 5,000 km of expressways by 2030, he said.
