The Vietnamese economy may expand 4-4.1% this year, which is an encouraging signal in the current context, said Eric Sidgwick, adding that the ABD always stands ready to support the Vietnamese Government.

Next year, a new Country Partnership Strategy will be drafted, under which the ADB would provide financial assistance to major infrastructure development projects and mobilize funding for innovations and knowledge-based activities.

The Government is in favor of ADB Strategy 2030, in the hope of realizing the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and continuing to help country members tackle problems of hunger and poverty, development gap and climate change, among others.

He also thanked the ADB for its counseling for the Government to respond to COVID-19 in recent times, adding the Vietnamese Government has exerted efforts to complete legal frameworks on public investment and public debt management for the sake of efficient and transparent use of foreign loans.
