By the end of 2019, the planned foreign capital disbursement is 110,428 million dong. Quang Tri province has 2 ODA projects funded by the World Bank, which are allowed to extend the implementation and disbursement of the 2019 plan to 2020 with an extended capital of 53,980 million VND.

According to the report of the provincial State Treasury, as of October 15, 2020, the planned foreign capital in 2019 is allowed to extend the implementation and disbursement time to 2020 to disburse 51,811 million VND.
