Receiving Axel van Trotsenburg, PM Chinh described the WB as a friend and leading development partner of Viet Nam.
He thanked the organisation for its contribution to Viet Nam’s economic development and social security, particularly via providing the nation with non-refundable aid worth 6.2 million USD and backing the rescheduling debt payment for Viet Nam so that the country can reserve resources for COVID-19 prevention and control.
