The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is an independent federal agency that provides economic, development and humanitarian assistance around the world in support of U.S. foreign policy goals. Currently, USAID programs in Vietnam support the country’s progress by focusing resources in health, economic growth and governance, higher education, environment and climate change and vulnerable populations, including persons with disabilities. USAID played a key role in helping Vietnam reach out to global markets through its accession to the World Trade Organization and the Vietnam-US. Bilateral Trade Agreement. In partnership with the Government of Vietnam, USAID continues to promote greater market integration through its support for the Trans-Pacific Partnership under negotiation. USAID also supports efforts to strengthen the rule of law and improves economic governance while seeking to further Vietnam’s integration into the global economy as it continues its transition to a market-driven system. Working with the Government of Vietnam, USAID promotes transparency in law making, accountability, access to information and increased competitiveness. Under the USAID Country Development and Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) for Vietnam for the 2014-2018 period, USAID assistance will be focused on collaborative efforts that support the goal of Vietnam’s continued transformation into a responsible, more inclusive partner.
