While meeting with Secretary General of the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) Mukhisa Kituyi, Deputy PM Ninh, who is also Head of the Inter-sector Steering Committee for Economic International Integration, praised the UNCTAD’s support for Vietnam over the years.

Ninh urged the two sides to enhance cooperation in research activities, policymaking, trade, and investment while actively supporting each other in World Trade Organisation (WTO) negotiations, financial management, and personnel training.

Kituyi said the UNCTAD will continue to coordinate with Vietnam to tap its potential for development, adding that he is willing to send additional experts to support Vietnam in priority development fields.

Mr. Ninh later met WTO Director-General Roberto Azevedo, who pledged to support Vietnam in its international integration for the sake of member countries and the global economy.

While meeting with Deputy Director at the Advisory Centre on WTO Law (ACWL) Cherise M. Valles and senior lawyer Leo Palma, Deputy PM Ninh said he hopes the center will continue assisting Vietnam in supplying legal services and consultations to mitigate disputes in handling lawsuits, and help Vietnamese legal officials better understand and more effectively deal with international trade issues. The same day, Deputy PM Ninh visited the Vietnamese Permanent Mission to the UN in Geneva.
