Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnam always considers the private sector an important driving force of development, said Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc during a reception in Hanoi on April 25 for World Economic Forum (WEF) Managing Director Philipp Rosler.

The Prime Minister appreciated the WEF’s support for Vietnam during the country’s process of socio-economic development.

He thanked the Managing Director’s invitation for the WEF-ASEAN meeting scheduled in this June and said the Vietnamese Foreign Ministry will make arrangements.

Highlighting the WEF_Mekong Conference to be held in Vietnam this year, the PM suggested the WEF leader closely collaborate with Foreign Ministry to contribute to successfully organising the large-scale meeting.

For his part, Rosler expressed his hope the Vietnamese PM will further boost cooperation with the WEF.

He said he believed that under the leadership of the PM, the Vietnamese private sector will play a more important role in the country’s socio-economic development process.
