Vietnam’s construction sector grows in 2016
The country’s construction sector is expected to improve further between 2017-2021 on the back of the government’s plans to improve living conditions in rural areas, to increase the share of passenger and freight transport by railway and to develop sea ports in order to increase trade volume in the country.
Accordingly, the government is planning to build schools, hospitals, roads, water-treatment facilities in rural areas; construct a dual-track railway line connecting two Vietnamese cities, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City; construct two express railway sections as well as upgrades to the existing railway and build 1 million affordable houses with an aim to increase housing area per capita, all by 2020.
