The CEO stated that the DFC always places great importance on cooperation efforts and sees Vietnam as a potential partner in future US-based projects.

As a development finance agency for the US Government, the DFC is currently initiating a range of measures to support investment projects in developing countries globally, especially those in energy, infrastructure, and the digital economy.

According to Mr. Boehler, the DFC pays close attention to supporting development projects that are underway in the Greater Mekong Sub-region, as well as those which specialize in producing strategic products that are suitable for the supply chain of the US.

He hoped that agreements can be reached in an effective manner during working meetings held between the DFC and various Vietnamese agencies, including the Ministry of Planning and Investment.

In his part, Ambassador Ha Kim Ngoc shared the nation’s experience in fighting the COVID-19, as well as its priorities in efforts to initiate an economic recovery, whilst simultaneously promoting regional and global co-operation in its role as the ASEAN Chair 2020.

The ambassador also applauded the DFC’s role and voiced his hope that both sides will soon move to implement specific co-operation projects regionally.

With this year marking 25 years since the normalization of diplomatic ties between the two countries, Ambassador Ngoc called on the DFC to continue to make contributions to relevant activities in the near future, including joining both the ASEAN - US and Vietnam - US conferences regarding investment co-operation within the region.

On this occasion, the Vietnamese Ambassador presented 500 face masks to DFC staff. In return, Boehler and representatives from DFC expressed their sincere thanks for efforts made by the Vietnamese Embassy and related businesses to share their experience, while noting their appreciation for the quality of the face masks produced by the country./.
