HÀ NỘI – Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc hosted a reception in Hà Nội yesterday for Alfred Kelly, CEO of Visa – a global payment technology company.
PM Phúc appreciated the US company’s presence in Việt Nam over the last two decades, as well as its co-ordination with the State Bank of Việt Nam (SBV) and other Vietnamese partners.
The Vietnamese Government backs co-operation between Visa and its Vietnamese partners, he said, hoping the company would continue helping ensure security and safety for e-payments in the country.
He also conveyed his hope to receive Visa’s support for the building of the digital economy, e-government services and smart cities in Việt Nam.
He asked the company to work with Việt Nam’s agencies to reach consensus on an e-payment system this year.
For his part, Kelly pledged to work with the Vietnamese Government, the SBV and the National Payment Corporation of Vietnam (NAPAS) to devise effective measures to serve Vietnamese people.
He proposed both sides co-ordinate to strengthen security in e-transactions as Visa has experience in this field.
He shared with his host that his company will hold a workshop on measures to ensure security in financial transactions in Việt Nam this week.
Visa wants to stand side-by-side with Việt Nam in its economic growth process, and support the country in fulfilling socio-economic development tasks, Kelly added. — VNS
