On Oct. 20th, the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) signed a Record of Discussions with the the Government of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam in Hanoi for Project for Strengthening the Urban Railway Training Capacity for Railway College, a technical cooperation project.
In Vietnam, urban railways are currently under development with the aim of resolving the traffic congestion, the increase in traffic accidents, and the worsening of air pollution. JICA supports urban railway construction in the country by Yen loans and technical cooperation projects.
