At a meeting with Nguyen Van Binh, Politburo member and head of the Party Central Committee’s Economic Commission, in Hanoi yesterday, Painchaud praised Vietnam's achievements in stabilising the macro economy, curbing inflation and spurring economic growth.
Binh, also Secretary of the Party Central Committee, said Vietnamese Party and State leaders treasure the IMF’s consultancy in policy making and economic restructuring.
He suggested Painchaud promote collaboration and co-ordinate with relevant Vietnamese agencies, especially in policy consultancy, technical assistance and capacity improvement.
Later the same day, Binh met Country Director of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) Vietnam Changhee-Lee.
Bình spoke highly of the ILO’s support for Vietnam in the field of labour and socio-economic development as well as ILO’s contribution to the building of Vietnamese laws and policies relating to labour and social affairs.
He suggested the ILO continue supporting Vietnam in completing the labour legal system in line with international standards.
He stressed Vietnam was willing to participate in all international treaties, including treaties on labour.
ILO director Lee said the ILO would continue promoting co-operation with Vietnam and would provide more support for Vietnam in finalising the legal system relating to labour, employment and social security, and in building strategies to deal with climate change.
