Vietnam is one of countries which have obtained many socio-economic achievements and made considerable changes in different areas, said the Director of the DEV Development Centre, Mario Pezzirri.
He was speaking on the occasion of the Vietnamese delegation’s upcoming visit to Paris, France to attend the High Level Meeting on March 1.
The meeting is part of activities marking the 50th anniversary of the establishment of DEV which has co-ordinated with developing countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) since 2008. Vietnam is one of DEV’s 17 member countries.
Mr Pezzirri emphasized that OECD could lay a foundation for Vietnam to achieve further success and share its experiences with other nations.
Vietnam, however, should overcome obstacles to maintain its sustainable growth rate for long-term development, he said.
Mr Pezzirri said, OCED is not a capital provider but can help Vietnam outline a suitable roadmap for development.
At the High Level meeting on March 1, the Vietnamese head delegation, who is also ambassador to France, Duong Chi Dung, will deliver a five-minute speech on OECD’s new development strategy.
With opinions collected from members of OECD and DEV, the draft on OECD new development strategy will be finalised to submit to the OECD’s Ministerial Meeting for approval next May.
