In 6 years of operation, the Management Board for Technical Infrastructure Works Construction and Investmenthas affirmed its ability and gradually overcome difficulties. Since 2008, the Board has implemented 62 projects, 38 among which have been completed and put into use, and 23 others are being implemented or under checking procedures. The project's main focus is roads, irrigation and power. Besides, the Board also implemented two transportation projects: Tan Van - Hong Thai - Binh La roads and Ly Thai To road (extended), performed as project management, consultancy, and supervision for 9 other investment projects.

Mr Nghiem Van Hai, Director of the Management Board for Technical Infrastructure Works Construction and Investment, said while other investors faced difficulties in capital investment due to the Resolution 11 to curb inflation, the Management Board for Technical Infrastructure Works Construction and Investmentdid not have to cut or transfer capital of any project. So, this is a very favourable condition and motivation for the Board to accelerate the progress of basic construction program in 2014. Shortly after receiving the capital allocating plan in 2014, the Board has focused on the implementing assigned projects with the highest sense of responsibility.
