Hanoi (VNA) – Goldman Sachs is committed to lasting cooperation with Vietnam by constantly seeking long-term international funds for the country’s development, said Andrea Vella, Head of the US-based multinational investment banking firm’s Asia division.

The statement was made during his meeting with Chairman of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Economic Affairs Nguyen Van Binh on April 26.

Vella said he believes in the potential of the Vietnamese market, adding that the company looks to new Public-Private Partnership (PPP) investment opportunities in energy, telecommunication, infrastructure and farming.

Goldman Sachs is particularly interested in projects related to climate change mitigation in the Mekong Delta and waste treatment in big cities, he noted.

Binh said he is pleased with the firm’s long-term commitment to Vietnam and its sound operation in mergers and acquisitions.

Goldman Sachs also did a good job in attracting funds for several PPP infrastructure projects, he added.

He urged the company to promote Vietnam’s business climate and expand its operations to more sectors of the local economy.-VNA
