NDO – Nearly VND1.730 trillion (EUR70.574 million), including EUR56.99 million from the official development assistance (ODA) by Hungarian Government, will be invested to build Can Tho Tumour Hospital in the Mekong River Delta province of Can Tho.

The information was released by a representative from Can Tho City Department of Health at a working session with Tombor Bálint, Chief Politic Consultant of Hungary Foreign Affairs and Economy, on implementation of building Can Tho Tumour Hospital.

According to Can Tho City People’s Committee, the construction of the project is scheduled to begin in June and is expected to finish in late 2018.

Under the project, the hospital will have 500 beds as well as will be equipped with advanced equipment and technology, contributing to reducing costs for patients in the entire Mekong River Delta region.

The hospital is expected to become one of the leading centres for researching and treating cancer and tumour in the country.

At the working session, Tombor Bálint appreciated the City’s efforts in implementing package deals under the project in order to ensure its progress.

In addition, Hungary will provide training for doctors of the hospital and send its medical experts to Can Tho to support the project.
