|Deputy Prime Minister Vuong Dinh Hue (R) receives Director of OECD’s Multi-dimensional Country Review (MDCR) office Jan Rielander
At a reception for Director of OECD’s Multi-dimensional Country Review (MDCR) office Jan Rielander in Hanoi on December 3, the Deputy PM affirmed Vietnam’s recognition of great importance to its cooperation with the OECD in respect of both bilateral and regional frameworks,
Hue was appreciative of the practical development of Vietnam-OECD cooperation and the positive outcomes of the bilateral cooperation plan for 2016-2020, while praising the organization for its support for Vietnam in scrutinizing the country’s development policies.
He asked the OECD to continue helping Vietnam with policy advice in terms of climate change and adaptable agriculture, science-technology, and education-training, and with the building of a roadmap to implement the minimum standards of base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS).
The Deputy PM highly appreciated the OECD for providing the preliminary proposal for the development of a MDCR for Vietnam, asking the organisation to help the country call for support from OECD member nations in carrying out the report.
Vietnam is destined to map out a socio-economic development strategy for after 2020 and the development of a MDCR will effectively support the policymaking process in the country, Hue told his host.
Jan Rielander, for his part, lauded Vietnam’s role and position in the Southeast Asia and Asia Pacific regions as the country became a full member of the OECD in 2018.
The OECD is working together with many countries, including Vietnam, to build the MDCR aiming to give recommendations and measures to governments towards promoting the development of their people, prosperity, and peace, he said, adding that the implementation of the report will begin next year.
During the meeting, host and guest consented to accelerate the implementation of the MDCR in Vietnam at the soonest possible time.
