The USAID/Vietnam team recently completed a midpoint review of our five year country development cooperation strategy for Vietnam. The strategy, developed in 2013, is a blueprint for our cooperation with the Government of Vietnam (GVN), local stakeholders and international partners to advance Vietnam’s transformation into a responsible, more inclusive partner. Key developments since the launch of our strategy – a new SocioEconomic Development Plan (SEDP), the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the release of the Vietnam 2035 Report – indicate that our priorities are still aligned with host country goals. But our review also demonstrated that we need to amplify activities in sustainable growth, environment and local partnerships to achieve our development objectives: (1) enhanced governance for broader-based sustainable growth, (2) improved health and well-being, and (3) legacies addressed for stronger U.S.-Vietnam partnership.
