HA NOI — A leader from the Viet Nam Fatherland Front (VFF) has asked UN organisations in Viet Nam to continue stepping up co-operation with the Vietnamese Government and the VFF in every field.
The President of the VFF's Central Committee, Huynh Dam, made the comments while receiving the UN Resident Co-ordinator in Viet Nam, Pratibha Mehta, in Ha Noi yesterday.
At the reception, Dam thanked UN organisations in Viet Nam for their support during Viet Nam's development process in general and its poverty reduction efforts in particular.
Over the past few years, Viet Nam and the UN have recorded many joint successes, including projects on health, poverty reduction and environmental protection, he said.
Mehta praised the role the VFF has played, as well as its effective and dynamic activities in uniting the people.
She said that she hoped UN organisations in Viet Nam and the VFF will continue to step up their joint initiatives in the future, especially in poverty reduction, economic development and improving health and education services. — VNS
