Mr. Phuc said he hopes the professor will comment on Vietnam’s socio-economic development policies and encourage foreign investors to come here.

Professor Hausmann said he was impressed by Vietnam’s spectacular socio-economic achievements, including a robust export growth rate, remarkable poverty reduction, a narrowing gap between the rich and the poor, and shrinking social inequality.

Professor Hausmann advised Vietnam to diversify exports, generate high added value, and control public debt to achieve sustainable growth.
