Hanoi (VNA) – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has wished that The Economist magazine of the UK will continue its effective coordination with Vietnam so as to promote the country’s economic and investment environment as well as introduce its development policies to international investors.

At a reception for the Economist Intelligence Unit’s Asia-Pacific Editorial Director Charles Goddard in Hanoi on November 2, the PM spoke highly of efforts made by The Economist and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in organising the Vietnam Summit 2016.

He expressed his belief that this year’s conference will actively contribute to promoting the Vietnamese economy to the international business community.

He applauded the magazine’s selection of the conference theme “Smooth Sailing Ahead”, focusing on many practical issues for Vietnam after it started to implement its 2016-2020 socio-economic development plan.

PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc stated the Vietnamese Government is striving to build a government of integrity with strong actions that is instrumental to development, hoping that the conference will help the global business community understand more about development opportunities and prospects in Vietnam as well as the Government’s strategies and policies, hence having effective business strategies in the country.

For his part, Charles Goddard showed his interest in Vietnam’s measures to transform its development model and increase productivity as well as difficulties facing the country in the implementation process.

He shared PM Phuc’s view that a peaceful and stable environment and a pure government are needed to develop the economy.-VNA
