At the Fourth Environment Ministers’ Meeting, environment leaders from the Greater Mekong Subregion called for stronger partnerships to protect and enhance their natural assets, including forests, farmlands, wetlands, and water bodies
The Greater Mekong Subregion has an opportunity to build on its success in promoting connectivity, economic competitiveness, and community through a new investment plan presented at the 5th GMS Leaders' Summit in Bangkok.
The Viet Nam country partnership strategy (CPS), 2012-2015 is fully aligned with the government’s Socio-Economic Development Plan, 2011-2015.
The CPS focuses ADB assistance to Viet Nam through three pillars: inclusive growth, enhancing economic efficiency, and environmental sustainability. To maximize the development impacts in which ADB can add the most value in the form of financing and knowledge, ADB prioritizes six sectors: agriculture and natural resources, education, energy, finance, transport, and water supply and other municipal infrastructure and services.
