Indonesia Ambassador praises Vietnam’s success
In a recent interview, Indonesian Ambassador to Vietnam Ibnu Hadi affirmed that the key to Vietnam's success is fast decision-making from the Government which receives support and is closely observed by all levels of society, according to the People Army's Newspaper.
According to Ibnu, Vietnam's economy is quite dependent on exports. But thanks to accurate evaluations and projections, the Vietnamese Government has devised measures to cushion the negative impact of COVID-19 by creating optimal conditions for exporters during the pandemic period and boosting the production of key export items such as garment, footwear, and medical equipment.
As a result, the economy remains resilient and enjoys positive growth which has gained the admiration of various countries in the region and the world, the diplomat noted. During its second wave of infections, Vietnam also quickly rolled out preventive measures in confirmed outbreaks instead of imposing large-scale restrictions, which kept the economy running, he added.
