Vietnamese PM:" ready to work with G20"
Dung made the statement while talking on the theme of global economy and a framework for strong, sustainable and balanced growth at the G20 Seoul Summit in the Republic of Korea (RoK) yesterday. He praised the first-ever policy combination at regional and global levels under the G-20's guidance as the largest contributor to the quick rebound of the global economy.
He recommended that the G-20 consider establishing a pilot policy consultation mechanism with a number of regional organisations, including Asean, to exchange information and views on regional and global financial and economic issues and implement the G-20's important decisions collectively.
Dung hailed G-20 countries, especially the host, for putting development issues on the agenda of the G-20 Seoul Summit.
He recommended that the G-20 continue prioritising development issues in its future summit agendas and take measures to assist developing nations, especially those categorised as middle-income countries, to help them avoid falling back into the lower category.
He suggested the G-20 consider establishing a knowledge sharing network with the participation of G-20 member and non-member states.
On the theme of climate change and green development, Dung also asked G-20 nations to do their best to reach a deal to cope with global climate change after 2012 at the 16th Conference of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol in Mexico later this month.
The Prime Minister put forth two initiatives: a special fund to assist badly affected countries and a climate-change forum for coastal countries.
