The Prime Minister has approved the Ministry of Planning and Investment’s proposal to organise the Consultative Group Meeting (CG) for Vietnam in Hanoi on December 10.
The PM is scheduled to attend and deliver a keynote speech at the annual meeting.

The PM has asked relevant ministries and agencies to work closely together with the Ministry of Planning and Investment to make thorough preparations for the event to ensure it will be a success.

During the mid-year CG meeting in Quang Tri province in June, donors and authorities of 14 north-central and central midland provinces discussed ways to support socio-economic development, poverty reduction, and climate change adaptation in the region.

The CG Meeting creates a forum for government officials and donors to exchange views on economic policies, poverty reduction strategies, and the effective use of official development assistance (ODA).
The formal meeting normally takes place in December every year while the informal (mid-year) meeting is held in May or June. Vietnam has played host to the event since 1999.
