The Government is now stepping up efforts in fostering recovery and socio-economic development, including its unprededented investments in expressway projects, and in combatting corruption and wastefullness under the leadership of Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong.

Pham said Viet Nam gives priority to luring investment in such fields like information technology, infrastructure for digital transformation, industrial infrastructure, climate change adaptation, green energy, diversification of supply chain, human resource training, pharmacy industry, processing and manufacturing, capital market among others.

He called on investors to continue taking part in the process of improving mechanisms and policies, urging ministies, agencies and localities to further reform administrative procedures.
