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 aims to be a vital partner in supporting a strong, prosperous and independent Vietnam that contributes to international security, engages in free, fair and reciprocal trade, and respects human rights and the rule of law.


The U.S. Government’s goal is an open, prosperous and secure Vietnam that is effective and inclusive in solving its own development challenges. By engaging all of Vietnam’s citizens, including vulnerable populations, and through strategically partnering with the Government of Vietnam, the private sector, and civil society, USAID aims to facilitate economic growth competitiveness, modernize higher education and training institutions, combat infectious disease, address war legacy issues, and increase environmental security, including increased resilience to climate change.
