Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung said Wednesday that the United Nations Delivering as One (DaO) initiative helped meet the socio-economic development needs in pilot countries.

Dung made the remarks at the high level tripartite conference on the United Nations (UN) Delivering as One held here from June 14 to 16 with the participants from eight pilot countries, eight volunteer countries and 18 donor countries, and representatives of UN and international organizations.

Speaking at the conference, Vietnam's Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung expressed appreciation for the initiative to hold a high- ranking conference which provides pilot countries with a chance to evaluate the DaO approach, in preparation for an independent evaluation by the end of 2010.

The conference demonstrated strong commitment from Vietnam and the other pilot countries to the reform of the United Nations, said Dung. It will help to call on the other UN member countries to participate in the initiative.

At the conference, the prime minister expressed his thanks to the international community for supporting Vietnam and hoped Vietnam and other developing countries will receive more support for their cause for economic development and social stabilization.

Vietnam is currently piloting the Delivering as One model and its government has worked closely with UN agencies to come up with strategic program to reach its long-term goals, according to Dung.
