Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnamese Government supports the implementation of the Multi-dimensional Country Review (MDCR) of Vietnam, considering this an important task that requires the engagement of many experts and scientists, Deputy Prime Minister Vuong Dinh Hue has said.

The official made the remarks at a reception for Jan Rielaender, head of the MDCR Unit of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), in Hanoi on February 26.

The Government has instructed relevant ministries and agencies to coordinate with the OECD in building the review, he said.

Hue told his guest that Vietnam is preparing for the 13th National Party Congress and Vietnamese leaders aim to set out visions for the country beyond the next ten years.

Therefore, Vietnam wants to know international views on its target of becoming a modern industrialised or developed nation, he said, noting that this is the key for building a national strategy.

The official highlighted the Vietnam 2035 Report, which was composed with the support of the World Bank (WB), and the network of initiatives mobilised by the Government and the Prime Minister.

Besides, Vietnam is completing a strategy for foreign investment attraction and use, while successfully implementing the strategy for the development of agriculture, rural areas and farmers, Hue said.

The Deputy PM expressed his hope for outcomes of the OECD’s MDCR of Vietnam.

For his part, Jan Rielaender spoke highly of Vietnam’s plan to 2035 with a vision towards 2045, suggesting strategies and policies aim to improve capacity of local businesses amidst the strong scientific and technological development.

He said he will study further to give more in-depth assessments and meticulous recommendations to Vietnam.-VNA
