The PM made that statement at his reception for ADB Country Director for Viet Nam Eric Sidgwick on May 25.
He hoped that Mr. Eric Sidgwick, with his experience and renowned competence in macro-economic stabilization and economic restructuring, will provide realistic consultancy and help Viet Nam in devising and realizing sustainable policies.
The Vietnamese Government will continue stabilizing the macro-economy, controlling inflation, accelerating growth, enhancing the development of the private sector, upgrading the infrastructure and responding to climate change, the PM asserted, asking for the assistance from the ADB to assist Viet Nam in overcoming difficulties and challenges.
The Government advocates the ADB’s Strategy 2030 to support member countries to address issues related to poverty, imbalanced development and climate change, he said.
