He called for more support, including finance and policy, from the World Bank for Viet Nam to cope with climate change and boost development of other key areas like infrastructure, education, renewable energy and economic restructuring.

Viet Nam considers businesses as the core force in accelerating economic growth, in which private sector takes an important role, PM Phuc said.

The Government chief also took the occasion to call on the World Bank to play a greater role in the cooperation process of the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) and the Cambodia – Laos – Viet Nam (CLV) Development Triangle Area.

Joaquim, who is in Viet Nam to attend the 6th GMS Summit and the 10th CLV Development Triangle Area Summit, spoke highly of the good and effective cooperation between Viet Nam and the Mekong Subregion countries, adding that it could be a good experience for many countries across the world.

He also highly valued Viet Nam’s robust development over the past years, especially in pursuing inclusive and fair growth.

The World Bank and the Asian Development Bank have conducted a number of projects to help Viet Nam reform tax sector and other areas, according to World Bank Managing Director Joaquim Levy.
