World Bank pledges more help to Vietnam

Human resource training is an area where Vietnam seeks stronger assistance from the World Bank, Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai said in a meeting with Victoria Kwakwa on Nov. 23

The World Bank Country Director for Vietnam, Ms. Victoria Kwakwa, assured Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai of continued assistance in construction and legislative work during their meeting in Hanoi on Nov. 23.

She highlighted the WB’s efforts in co-sponsoring a workshop on November 24 to get feedback from investors, both at home and abroad, as well as international experts and Governmental agencies on the creation of a supportive framework for public-private projects on infrastructure as well as for finance and project management.

Deputy PM Hai said the country sought stronger assistance from the WB in human resource training, information campaigns and law making.

“Projects in infrastructure construction normally draw multi-party involvement, which requires intensive personnel training and streamlined procedures in conducting projects so as to attract increased investment into this field from the private sector,” said Mr. Hai.
