Under the plan, the total investment of VND29 trillion will be raised from different sources, including state budget and ODA.
Of the sum, VND14.5 trillion will be used for technology transfer of solid waste settlement, including VND9.5 trillion for technology transfer of two treatment plants and VND5 trillion for building a new plant with daily capacity of 2,000 tonnes.
