Vietnam has undergone an economic transformation in recent decades and has risen to the status of a lower middle-income country. However, sustained progress is threatened by poor governance, a weak business environment, limited transparency, and health and environmental problems. 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 continued development by focusing resources where they’re needed most in economic growth, higher education, health security, social services for vulnerable populations and environment.
