HÀ NỘI — CEO of the Mekong River Commission (MRC) Secretariat Phạm Tuấn Phan appreciated Việt Nam’s contributions to and co-operation with the commission while being received by Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc in Hà Nội on September 13.

Phan, who was in Việt Nam to attend the World Economic Forum on ASEAN 2018 (WEF ASEAN), agreed to co-ordinate with Việt Nam in boosting efforts towards the Mekong River basin’s common goal of using the river water resources in a sustainable and effective manner.

At the reception, PM Phúc proposed the MRC promote its role in accelerating the implementation of the basin cooperation strategy and set out orientations and measures to achieve sustainable development goals.

The commission should enhance cooperation mechanisms inside and outside the region as affirmed in the Siem Riep Declaration adopted at the third MRC Summit held in Cambodia last April, he said. — VNS
