Ambassador Nga on behalf of the Government and people of Vietnam thanked the UN agency for its precious support and cooperation to Vietnam.
UNDP was among the first to come to help Vietnam to rebuild the country after many decades of wars, she said.
With the assistance of UNDP together with other UN agencies and development partners, Vietnam has made great strides in reconstruction, poverty reduction, implementation of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and now moved on the new path of inclusive and sustainable development.
UNDP also plays an important role as the lead agency in successfully implementing Delivering As One (DAO) in Vietnam, making UN assistance more focused, strategic, coherent, efficient and effective, she added.
In her speech, the Ambassador highlighted the role and contributions of the UN agency over half a century, saying that the UNDP has always been on the "front-line of a global war on want", playing a leading transformational role in reducing poverty, empowering people, protecting the environment and building resilient nations around the world
