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 works with the public and private sectors in Vietnam to enhance governance and facilitate trade. The program is improving the country’s legal and regulatory environment, creating systems of accountability, and promoting inclusive growth that benefits all citizens. With various technical activities, GIG builds collaborative partnerships and trust between the government, private sector, and civil society organizations to create meaningful and sustainable reform. Together, stakeholders have 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.
