The Government leader toured the construction categories under the project, such as Ben Thanh terminal, Opera House terminal and a section of TBM underground tunnel.

He highly appreciated the efforts made by the city and relevant units, particularly the project management board, in ensuring the progress and quality of the project as well as safety at work.
