Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung praises ADB’s effective assistance
(English) - PM Nguyen Tan Dung praised the Asian Development Bank’s effective cooperation and assistance, particularly in the fields of policy consultation and investment capital, to Viet Nam over the past time while receiving the bank’s Vice President Stephen Groff in Ha Noi on Feb. 9.
The Government chief noted that the ADB-funded projects have made pratical contributions to socio-economic development in the Southeast Asian country. By now, ADB has provided around US $10 billion to Viet Nam.

The ADB executive affirmed that his bank always attaches importance to consolidating ties with Viet Nam.
