Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc reiterated Vietnam always regards the US as one of the top partners, expressing his wish to further foster the comprehensive partnership with the US, especially in such fields like economy, trade and investment, during his reception for Adam Boehler, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the US International Development Finance Corporation (DFC) and representatives from the US Department of Treasury, the Department of Commerce, and the US Export-Import Bank (EximBank), in Hanoi on Monday.

The Government chief said Vietnam attaches great importance to and highly values the US’s active participation in the US-Mekong Partnership and that the DFC’s investment expansion in the Mekong region will be foundation for building a dynamic, resilient, and sustainable Mekong region and a strong ASEAN.
