Victoria Kwakwa congratulated Viet Nam on its high economic growth rate, especially in the first quarter of 2018, adding that by organizing the GEF 6 and many large international conferences in recent times, Viet Nam has demonstrated its increasing international prestige and position.

The WB is researching ways to help Viet Nam’s big groups to access the WB loans without having to meet the requirements set for borrowing countries, she said, pledging to create favorable conditions for Ha Noi, Ho Chi Minh City and other Vietnamese cities to approach the WB’s credits.

Mentioning the PM’s proposal for the WB’s support in renewable energy development, Kwakwa said that the WB wishes to cooperate with Viet Nam in such a potential sphere.
