Alabatani said building on the success of the first stage of the programme (2017-2018) with a focus on training and improvement of pension fund governance, the WB will arrange financing to continue assisting the VSS in the efforts during the second stage from 2019-2021.

Earlier, the lender announced it had mobilised 500,000 USD from First Initiative Foundation to assist the Vietnamese government in pension reform.

Both sides agreed on a working plan to implement the technical support programme based on priorities set by the government. They discussed the VSS’s fund management and investment, the supervision of private pension and the organisation of seminars on the field.
