Deputy Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Antoinette Monsio Sayeh shared the view during an online meeting with Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh on May 16, expressed her delight at the strong progress in the Vietnam-IMF partnership.

The IMF’s executive highlighted Vietnam’s efforts in containing the pandemic and considered the effective vaccine campaign a key factor for the country’s speedy economic recovery.

Prime Minister Chinh welcomed IMF’s support for Vietnam in accessing vaccine supply, finance resources, and policy consultation during the socio-economic development.

According to Chinh, the country is now driving economic recovery after containing the pandemic.

The upcoming socio-economic recovery package, estimated at US$15.4 billion or 4% of the GDP, would consist of five components, including economic reopening with a focus on higher healthcare capabilities; ensuring social welfare and job security; supporting businesses recovery; promoting infrastructure development; and improving legal institution and business environment.

Chinh called for the IMF to continue supporting Vietnam in realizing the five-year socio-economic development plan (2021-2025) and the 10-year plan (2021-2030).

“Vietnam considers IMF a key partner in pursuing the goal of becoming an upper-middle-income country by 2030, and high-income country by 2045,” he said.

In the short term, Chinh expected IMF’s assistance in stabilizing macro-economic conditions; developing a sustainable and transparent capital market; containing inflation; promoting logistics development; digitalization; supply chain diversification; and climate change adaptation.
