World Bank: To Hold Consultative Group Meeting For Vietnam

HANOI -(Dow Jones)- The World Bank said Monday that its Consultative Group for Vietnam will begin an informal mid-year review meeting on June 8 in Buon Ma Thuot City in Dak Lak province.

The two-day meeting will focus on the country's economic growth forecast for this year, the social impact of the economic slowdown and policy response, governance, anti-corruption and climate-change issues, the World Bank said.

Representatives from the Asian Development Bank and government officials from around 50 countries, including the U.S., Japan, Britain and France, are expected to attend the meeting.

At last year's consultative group meeting held in Hanoi in December, donor countries and international development organizations committed over $5 billion to support poverty reduction and Vietnam's development agenda.
