The lender also assisted Vietnam in realising vision and implementing policy recommendations in the strategic report “Vietnam 2035”.

Dione, for his part, highly valued the Vietnamese legislature for approving the Public-Private Partnership Law and the European Union – Vietnam Free Trade Agreement, especially amid rising protectionism at present.

As Vietnam is in the period of economic recovery following the Covid-19 pandemic, the WB’s policy recommendations are helpful to the country, she said, adding that Vietnam is also willing to welcome a new wave of investment, prioritise hi-tech projects to contribute to promoting digital economy.
