Viet Nam still has to face a number of difficulties and challenges in enhancing development, increasing competitiveness, reducing poverty sustainably, promoting health and education, ensuring social welfare and security, overcoming consequences of the war and coping with climate change and high-rise sea level, he said.

The PM highly appraised the outcomes of WB President Jim Yong Kim’s visit to Viet Nam in February and the two sides’ cooperation in establishing the “Viet Nam 2035: Toward Prosperity, Creativity, Equity and Democracy”.

The WB is doing its utmost to cooperate with the Vietnamese ministries and agencies in launching agreements during the WB President’s visit to Viet Nam and in the report Viet Nam 2035, affirmed the WB Country Director.

The WB hailed Viet Nam’s developments in socio-economic development, response to the global crisis, macro-economic sustainability, high growth rate and social welfare and security guaranty, she said, confirming that the WB committed to working with its partners to seek ways and roadmaps for the nation to ensure the financial resources for realizing development goals.

The WB is proud to take part in Viet Nam’s development process and always supports the nation to fulfill its development tasks, she revealed.
