Vietnam has experienced rapid economic growth over the past 15 years and has risen to the status of a lower middle-income country. However, progress is threatened by health and environmental problems, a weak business environment, poor governance, and limited transparency. Our assistance is accelerating Vietnam’s transformation to a responsible, more inclusive partner and a market-based economy, and addressing the legacies of the past conflict between our countries.
USAID programs in Vietnam support the country’s progress by focusing resources where they’re needed most in health, private sector competitiveness, environment, social services for vulnerable populations and higher education.
