The PM hailed the effective and realistic assistance of the IMF to the nation’s socio-economic development process, especially in terms of finance-banking, public debt and reforming the State-owned enterprises (SOEs), expressing his hope that Viet Nam will receive more assistance from the IMF in macro-economic policy consultancy during its future national development.

Viet Nam will ensure transparency in the reform and SOEs equitization process and enhance economic development in line with environmental protection as well as make efforts in administrative procedure reform and anti-corruption, he asserted.

For his side, Mr. Jonathan Dunn confirmed the IMF’s commitments in closely cooperating with the Vietnamese relevant agencies to propose macro-economic recommendations to help the Vietnamese Government head on the right track.

The IMF appraised the nation’s reform programs such as SOEs restructuring and the economic growth of 6% in the context of a number of challenges in the global economy, he said.

He suggested the Government continue the work in the new period, especially stabilizing the macro-economy, controlling public debts, supporting the development of the private sector and SOEs restructuring./.
