The Italian government has pledged around EUR7 million (US$9.3 million) in non-refundable aid for three projects in Vietnam's central province of Quang Nam.

The money will go mostly to two projects, one to improve the health sector at a cost of EUR3 million ($4.04 million) and the other to provide training in automobile technology and restoration of relics at a cost of EUR3.5 million ($4.7 million).

The rest will fund ongoing restoration of the My Son temple complex, a UNESCO world heritage site.

Earlier this year the Italian government provided $11.2 million worth Official Development Assistance for two projects in Quang Nam one to build a drainage system and improve environmental hygiene in Nui Thanh Urban Area at a cost of $9.5 million and the other for poverty reduction.
