Speaking at the meeting, the representative of AFD, Mr. Quentin Lebegue said that AFD has been providing loans to the Government with very favorable interest rates and conditions. AFD is eager and ready to fund the next project in the career education sector. However, Vietnam's on-lending mechanism problems are a huge barrier to not only AFD's investment but all other donors. Therefore, AFD suggested that there should soon be a clearer mechanism for AFD to participate in investment in Vietnam. AFD promises to provide a non-refundable technical assistance grant to hire experts to assess the development investment needs of the current Vietnamese vocational education system, achievements and success lessons from the previous project as a premise for the promotion of new projects with highest investment efficiency.  
Summarizing the meeting, Director General Truong Anh Dung thanked AFD representatives and expected the two sides to continue to exchange ideas and implementation mechanisms as the official basis for project proposal.
