Foreign NGOs meet in Hanoi

(VOV) - Representatives from more than 200 international non-governmental organisations (INGOs) convened their regular meeting in Hanoi on September 26.

Participants were briefed on INGO activities during the first eight months of this year and some new regulations governing INGO operations in Vietnam.

They discussed the People's Aid Coordinating Committee (PACCOM)’s administrative procedure tools, the national programme promoting INGO assistance over the 2013–2017 period, and plans for the third Vietnam-INGO international partnership meeting.

The Committee for Foreign NGO Affairs told INGO representatives of its desire to strengthen information exchanges and pledged to foster the best possible administrative conditions for INGO operations. The Committee wants to expand its cooperation with INGO and improve the efficiency of INGOs’ Vietnamese projects.
