The Vietnamese government pledges to effectively use the source of assistance from the Asia Development Bank (ADB), Minister of Planning and Investment Bui Quang Vinh said at his recent meeting with ADB Vice President Bruce Davis in Hanoi.

Vietnam appreciates ADB’s role, Minister Vinh said, adding that the bank has made important contributions to the country’s achievements.

He noted that ADB is among the three largest donors to Vietnam , providing major assistance to important infrastructure projects in the country.

At the same time, the minister emphasised difficulties facing Vietnam during the implementation of projects funded by ADB and other donors, particularly issues related to Vietnam’s corresponding capital and capacity of project management units (PMU).

The ADB official said his bank always creates best conditions for Vietnam , its third biggest client, to access its source of capital to speed up its development projects.

In the coming time, he said, the bank will help Vietnam enhance PMU capacity as well as address related problems. -VNA
