HA NOI (VNS)— The Vietnamese Party and State would continue to welcome non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to work in Viet Nam with a raft of incentives, especially in priority areas for national development.
Deputy PM and Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh made the statement at a reception in Ha Noi yesterday for representatives from foreign NGOs, who are here to attend the third international conference on their co-operation with Viet Nam.
Informing his guests that Viet Nam was making the most of the financial assistance provided by NGOs, Minh sought closer co-ordination with them in poverty reduction, education, healthcare and post-war recovery, with long-term and sustainable funding.
Foreign NGO representatives praised Viet Nam's renewal process, industrialisation and modernisation, as well as in improving people's living standards and social equality.
They called on Viet Nam to simplify and publicise administrative procedures relevant to their operations so that they were able to run their projects more efficiently.
The guests vowed to stand side by side with Viet Nam on its path of socio-economic advancement. . — VNS
