Brief description

Viet Nam made great strides in raising living standards by heavily investing in human development. However, the key challenge is to avoid the risk of the ‘middle-income trap’, where a country’s growth stagnates after reaching middle-income status due to inefficient allocation of resources, a low-skilled labour force and low levels of innovation. The overall objective of the Joint Programme (JP) is to support Viet Nam’s transformation to a more inclusive, productive, green, and climate resilient economy and accelerate the achievement of the SDGs in order to tackle the current challenges.


The JP will assist the development and rolling-out of Viet Nam’s 2030 integrated financing and investment strategy, of which the SDGs are at the heart, while considering the impact of the recent pandemic, COVID-19. This will be achieved through supporting Viet Nam’s 2030 Finance Strategy, Medium-Term Investment Plan and Medium-Term Budget Plan to deliver the following expected results: (a) Strengthened resource allocation with the new national Socio-Economic Development Plan and national SDG priorities; (b) Improved effectiveness of public investment through better integration across government; and (c) Increased private sector investment, and quality foreign direct investment flows that support the development of green, productive domestic enterprises.
