Country Office Viet Nam
UNIDO has been present in Viet Nam since 1978 and provided technical assistance to the Government of Viet Nam in accordance with high international standards.
As in other countries, the overall mission of the UNIDO Country Office in Viet Nam is to strengthen Viet Nam's sustainable industrial development and competitiveness in order to become a modern industrialized country by 2020. To reach this objective UNIDO's Country Office in Viet Nam is generating new ideas with the Government and business sector, as well as liaising with the donor community, and can count on the support of some three hundreds technical specialists based at UNIDO's Headquarters in Vienna, Austria.
Annual technical assistance delivery of the Office in Hanoi has been one of the highest among the thirty UNIDO offices worldwide. Since its establishment, UNIDO has implemented more than 150 projects in the whole of Viet Nam’s territory with accumulated budgets of approximately 88 million USD, at a grant basis (Evaluation report 2012).
Over the years, the specific focus of UNIDO in Viet Nam has changed accordingly to meet the development needs of the country.
