NDO/VNA – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc hosted a reception on March 13 for economist Philipp Rosler, urging him to make further contributions to Vietnam’s socio-economic development, especially towards the development of the business community.

The PM thanked Philipp Rosler and the World Economic Forum for organising a dialogue between him and the leaders of global groups on the sidelines of WEF Davos 2019 in Switzerland’s city of Zurich in January.

He briefed the economist on Vietnam’s socio-economic situation over recent years, with sound macro-economic development.

Vietnam has rolled out various institutions and policies to spur national growth and remove difficulties to production and business, he said, adding that the domestic business environment has improved remarkably.

PM Phuc called on Rosler to help Vietnam with start-up development, a field which he is particularly interested in, in order to make the country’s start-up projects and programmes more effective and practical.

For his part, Rosler congratulated Vietnam on its successful organisation of the second summit between the US and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea in Hanoi last month.

Recalling the dialogue between PM Phuc and investors in Zurich, Rosler said international investors were impressed by the role and significant contributions of the PM and Vietnamese delegates to WEF Davos 2019.

He hailed the Vietnamese Government’s policies in support of foreign investors in the country, pledging to step up cooperation and support activities through programmes and projects under the German House project in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

PM Phuc highly valued the German House project’s specific programmes and projects, thus contributing to the mutual understanding, cultural exchanges, and economic cooperation between the people and businesses of Vietnam and Germany.
