Governance for Inclusive Growth
Although recent modernization and market reform have improved Vietnam’s economy, there are still vulnerable populations that have been unable to reap the benefits of this growth. The USAID Governance for Inclusive Growth (GIG) program worked with the public and private sectors in Vietnam to enhance governance and facilitate trade. The program improved the country’s legal and regulatory environment, created systems of accountability, and promoted inclusive growth that benefitted all citizens. With various technical activities, GIG built collaborative partnerships and trust between the government, private sector, and civil society organizations that created meaningful and sustainable reform. Together, stakeholders supported Vietnam’s efforts to improve its legal drafting, including the drafting of more than 40 laws and regulations. GIG has also implemented more than 40 activities to enhance policy development and worked with more than 50 civil society organizations to support reforms.
