HA NOI (VNS)— Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc met with World Bank (WB) Viet Nam Country Director Victoria Kwakwa yesterday, to discuss a central coast region development workshop scheduled to take place in May.

The Deputy PM said the Government of Viet Nam regarded the WB as a reliable partner in assisting infrastructure development and poverty eradication in Viet Nam, notably through policy consultation and by supplying vital resources.

Both sides agreed that the workshop would focus on opportunities and challenges facing the region, and the possibility of bilateral cooperation under the master plan for the development of the north-central and central coastal regions up to 2020.

The event will highlight strategies and development priorities for the central coast region, as well as the level of support that the WB will offer in strengthening the fight against climate change and lacklustre infrastructure.

Kwakwa affirmed that the WB stood side by side with Viet Nam to help the country achieve its economic development goals. — VNS
