He also underscored the effective coordination between Vietnam and the US in producing and supplying medical supplies and protective equipment to combat the Covid-19 pandemic.

As a development finance agency of the US Government, the DFC is implementing a series of plans to support investment projects in developing countries, especially those in the spheres of energy, infrastructure and digital economy, the DFC official noted, adding that the DFC always attaches great importance to and considers Vietnam a preferred partner in US cooperative projects.

He highly valued the DFC’s role and expressed his hope that the two sides would soon deploy specific cooperation projects in the region.

Emphasising that 2020 marks 25 years of normalisation of Vietnam-US relations, the diplomat called on the DFC to continue its participation and contribution in relevant activities within the coming time, including joining ASEAN-US and Vietnam-US conferences on investment cooperation in the region.
