Phan Anh Son acknowledged ActionAid's contribution to Vietnam. To achieve its goal of becoming a middle-income country by 2030, Vietnam needs support from the international community, including ActionAid. He suggested ActionAid consider implementing activities to raise awareness about responding to climate change, save energy, organize education and vocational training, build a bookcase for women and disadvantaged children, and exchange experts in agriculture.
Hoang Phuong Thao, ActionAid Representative in Vietnam thanked VUFO and PACCOM for accompanying and supporting its activities in Vietnam, especially in handling administrative procedures. According to Thao, ActionAid plans to deploy activities in the fields that Vietnam needs such as environmental protection, support for disadvantaged groups, and increased competitiveness of Vietnamese agricultural and forestry products in the international market.
According to Razmi Fatima Farook, Vietnam is among the countries that have achieved the most positive results from ActionAid's programs. ActionAid hopes to continue accompanying the Vietnamese government to realize development goals, and at the same time hopes to learn from Vietnam's experiences to better plan its future projects in the region and around the world.
