HÀ NỘI — Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc on Wednesday hosted a reception for former Vice Chancellor of Germany Philipp Rosler and urged him to make further contributions to Việt Nam’s development, especially the development of the business community.
The PM thanked Rosler and the World Economic Forum (WEF) for organising a dialogue between him and leaders of global groups on the sideline of WEF Davos 2019 in Zurich in January and briefed the economist on Việt Nam’s socio-economic situation.
Việt Nam has rolled out various policies to spur national growth and remove difficulties to production and business, he said, adding that the domestic business environment has been improved remarkably.
Currently, the country is home to 26,000 operational foreign direct investment (FDI) projects with total registered capital of nearly US$350 billion. There has also been a notable rise of more large investors coming to Việt Nam with large-scale projects.
PM Phúc called on Rosler to help Việt Nam with start-up development, a field which he is interested in, in order to make the country’s start-up projects and programmes more effective.
Recalling the dialogue between PM Phúc and investors in Zurich, Rosler said international investors were impressed by the role and contributions of the PM and Vietnamese delegates to WEF Davos 2019.
He hailed the Vietnamese Government’s policies in support of foreign investors, pledging to step up co-operation and support activities through programmes and projects under the German House project in Hà Nội and HCM City.
PM Phúc lauded the German House project’s programmes and projects, contributing to promoting mutual understanding, cultural exchange, and economic co-operation between the people and businesses of Việt Nam and Germany.
Rosler was born in southern Việt Nam in 1973 and was adopted by a German couple at nine months old. — VNS
