Vietnam Country Profile

Speeches Shim

Despite Vietnam’s dramatic economic transformation into a lower middle-income country, numerous development challenges threaten Vietnam’s continued pace of economic growth and hamper its deeper integration into the global economy. The United States supports a strong, prosperous, and independent Vietnam that contributes to international security, engages in mutually beneficial trade relations, and respects human rights and the rule of law.


USAID and Vietnam enjoy an increasingly cooperative and comprehensive development partnership aimed at ensuring Vietnam is effective and inclusive in solving its own development challenges. By engaging all of Vietnam’s citizens, including vulnerable populations, and through strategic partnership with the Government of Vietnam, the private sector, and civil society, USAID strengthens local leadership at the same time we work to increase economic competitiveness, modernize higher education, combat infectious disease, address war legacy issues, conserve forests and biodiversity, and promote renewable energy.
