Urban infrastructure has made progress. 15 projects have implemented with a total mobilized capital of VND2,698 billion, including the investment capital outside the State budget of VND 1,907 billion.

Along with infrastructure of transportation and urban, infrastructure projects of industrial zones and clusters, especially projects in infrastructure business investment were also focused to create clean land fund for investor attraction. In the past 3 years, the province implemented 17 infrastructure projects of industrial zones and clusters with a total mobilized capital of VND1,094 billion.

In the period of 2019-2020, Phu Tho strives to mobilize over VND27.5 trillion to invest in key infrastructure projects, including the expected private capital of over VND20,000 billion. With the viewpoint of mobilizing and effectively using all resources, Phu Tho will arrange priority projects for timely investment resources to soon put them into effective exploitation and use.
