Today, the U.S. Embassy, in cooperation its Vietnamese government partners, held a signature event entitled “Advancing Prosperity: Twenty Years of U.S.-Vietnam Development Cooperation,” to highlight key achievements since the normalization of the diplomatic relations between the two countries in 1995 and outline the agenda for future cooperation.
Days ago the United Nations agreed on a Post-2015 Development Agenda with 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs). Two weeks earlier, agreement was reached on the Addis Ababa Action Agenda for financing those inspiring and very ambitious goals. In many ways, Vietnam has become a model for the MDGs and it did so in collaboration with important development partners, including the US, and with the support of many international NGOs, including many based in the US. Today we should celebrate how that came to be, so that we can do even better on our new shared agenda.
