Hanoi (VNA) – The Chief Representative of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) in Vietnam, Yasuo Fujita, has proposed several measures to help the Vietnamese Government use official development assistance for public-private partnership (PPP) projects.

At his meeting with Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung in Hanoi on May 18, he pledged to do his utmost to intensify the two countries’ relations and share with the host specific mechanisms to boost the public-private partnership, particularly in infrastructure building.

He also made recommendations to help speed up the progress of several JICA-funded projects in Vietnam.

Deputy PM Dung, in turn, stressed that Vietnam continually considers Japan its leading partner in trade and investment cooperation.

Speaking of new cooperation mechanisms proposed by JICA, he said that Vietnam currently has huge demands of mobilising resources for infrastructure in order to boost growth.

He affirmed that the involvement of the Vietnamese Government in PPP projects will help better the implementation of these projects.-VNA
