Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc hosted a reception for international development partners,
organisations and sponsors in Can Tho city on March 13 on the sidelines of the third
Conference on Climate Resilient and Sustainable Development of Mekong River
Delta of Vietnam.
Thanking them for participating
in the event, the PM emphasised that their cooperation remains extremely
important to Vietnam. Vietnam has studied cases of several deltas in Europe and
other parts of the world and looked into models, practices and lessons learned
from many countries, he said, it is important to not only boost economic cooperation but also foster experience sharing in climate change response in
He underscored the significance
of resources to the development of the Mekong Delta in the face of severe
natural disasters, saying he hopes foreign partner countries and international organisations
will work alongside Vietnam to create new resources.
The PM also urged for further
expanding partnership in human resources training, foreign direct
investment and protection of rivers, particularly downstream areas in Vietnam
and regional countries which are vulnerable to actions in upstream areas.
He emphasised the importance of international cooperation in protecting cross-border rivers, saying that he wants
to receive opinions and learn from experience of other countries.
Representatives of development
partners and organisations, meanwhile, highly appreciated Vietnam’s efforts to
promoting sustainable and climate-resilient development of the Mekong Delta
through the issuance of the Government's Resolution 120/NQ-CP in 2017 and its
hosting of the conference.
They also demonstrated a strong
commitment to cooperating with and supporting Vietnam in this area./.
