Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has approved the organisation of the Vietnam Development Partnership Forum (VDPF) 2015.

The PM appointed the Ministry of Planning and Investment to prepare the forum’s agenda with a focus on Vietnam’s key issues in its extensive global integration from 2016-2020 that require opinions and ideas from the partners.

He is scheduled to attend the event and hold talks with development partners.

The VDPF, firstly held in 2013, supports substantive policy discussion between the Vietnam Government, its development partners, the private sector, local and international civil society organisations, national research institutions and other development actors to foster broad-based socio-economic development and improved well-being for all Vietnamese.

Last year, the forum was organised under the theme “Accelerating economic institutional reform, strengthening resilience and enhancing the competitiveness of Vietnam’s economy”.

It sought recommendations pertaining to institutional economic market reforms and the development of the private sector to the Government.-VNA
