On the afternoon of October 26, Mr. Le Trung Chinh, Chairman of the Da Nang People's Committee, chaired a meeting with the World Bank (WB) regarding the Comprehensive Cooperation Program to support Da Nang's economic recovery and sustainable development.

Ms. Carolyn Turk, the WB's Country Director in Vietnam, stated that Da Nang has effectively implemented WB cooperation and support programs over the past 10 years. She expressed confidence that this program would also yield the expected results, strengthening Da Nang's ongoing recovery process following Covid-19 and global changes. It will pave the way for more comprehensive, green, and friendly development to support households and businesses while expanding renewable energy sources.

Upon completing the program, Da Nang aims to achieve five fundamental goals: risk management, low-carbon and sustainable urban transport development, digital transformation, circular economy, and public financial management.

Chairman of the Da Nang City People’s Committee Le Trung Chinh thanked WB for its attention and active support in recent times. He emphasized that both parties are on the right track with the cooperation program. He also suggested that the relevant departments, which are responsible for the program's five goals, closely follow the research outline and proactively collaborate with WB experts and other related agencies. They should carry out the program and regularly report to the Da Nang People's Committee.

During the meeting, both sides introduced the Da Nang- World Bank Working Group (DWG). The group's objective is to establish an organized cooperation system with Da Nang to help the city achieve its short-term and long-term goals. DWG creates a structured cooperation system to identify challenges and priority areas clearly.

Five technical groups have been formed under the DWG, including Low-Carbon and Sustainable Urban Transport led by the Department of Industry and Trade, Digital Transformation led by the Department of Information and Communication, Climate and Disaster Risk Management led by the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, Circular Economy led by the Department of Natural Resources and Environment, and Public Financial Management led by the Department of Finance.
