Speaking during her three-day field trip to Germany-funded projects in Vietnam on Thursday, the German diplomat said the success of projects in Vietnam would result in a continued flow of high ODA for Vietnam.
It is not until July that the two governments will meet to discuss the cooperation programs for the next two years, but given the success of projects funded by Germany’s ODA in southern localities, Germany will maintain its ODA for Vietnam, she said.
Her field trip was aimed to evaluate the success of Germany-funded projects in the country, including the salinity-intruded forest conservation project worth 8.6 million euros in Bac Lieu and Soc Trang.
The ambassador also attended the inauguration of the wastewater treatment plant in Soc Trang, where Germany has funded 5.1 million euros. She also visited the vocational training college Lilama 2 in Dong Nai Province, which has received 16 million euros from Germany.
