Minister Son asked the OECD to continue its policy consultancy to help Vietnam restructure its economy, reform its growth model based on technology, and promote innovation and the digital economy. 

He also called for the OECD’s coordination and advice on global minimum tax, carbon emission reduction, and environmental protection, and its support in seeking resources for joint projects.

Cormann said he was impressed with Vietnam’s socio-economic development, and that the OECD will continue to support Vietnam in its green and sustainable economic development. 

The OECD is ready to send experts to help Vietnam implement the regulations related to the global minimum corporate income tax, he said.

Cormann added that the OECD attaches importance to the role of Southeast Asia and will help Vietnam prepare for the second OECD-Southeast Asia Ministerial Forum, which will be held in Hanoi in October.
