Deputy Minister Phuong spoke highly of the intensive cooperation between the UNDP and Vietnam over the past time, especially in realising socio-economic development goals. He wished that during her tenure, the UNDP official will continue its friendship and cooperation with the country so far, contributing to deepening the partnership between the UNDP and the Ministry of Planning and Investment, and reaping new achievements.

Both UNDP and the United Nations in Vietnam have implemented the cooperation program for the 2022-2026 period as Vietnam is in post-pandemic recovery. He said, Vietnam has stepped up action on the Sustainable Development Agenda and international commitments, especially those at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), creating basis for a strong and close relationship between Vietnam, the MPI and UNDP.

For her part, Khalidi reiterated the implementation of international commitments in 2023, especially those to realise the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development goals and the COP26 commitments. This requires the Government’s actions and people’s efforts.

She said, the UNDP has supported Viet Nam in building the national action plan to implement the 2030 Agenda for SDGs, the report of 5-year progress of SDGs implementation with “leaving no one behind”, and inclusive growth models for the country’s socio-economic development strategies and plans.

The UNDP official highlighted several outstanding results between UNDP and the MPI such as: developing multidimensional poverty index, mobilising resource for climate change from the green climate fund, building climate public expenditure and investment review, launching the “Leveraging Vietnam’s social impact business ecosystem in response to COVID-19 (ISEE-COVID)” project, and promoting innovation.

Khalidi also informed the deputy minister about the “improving resilience to climate change of vulnerable coastal communities” project to increase the resilience of vulnerable coastal communities to climate change, and grassroots telemedicine project which is piloted in some localities.

Phuong greatly valued the UNDP’s cooperation with the ministry, and affirmed to work closely with UNDP to successfully carry out set projects.

As a government agency performs the functions of state management over national socio-economic development strategies, including advise on official development assistance (ODA) source, preferential loans and foreign non-governmental aids, the MPI pledges to coordinate with all donors, including UNDP to reach consensus on implementing joint projects./.
