“As we celebrate the 25th anniversary of diplomatic relations this year, the “Facebook for Vietnam” campaign, which further expands Facebook’s socio-economic development projects throughout the country, demonstrates both Facebook’s and the United States’ long-term commitment to the prosperity of Vietnam,” said Daniel Kritenbrink, US ambassador to Vietnam.

Nguyen Anh Nguyet, Facebook’s Vietnam Public Policy Director, said Vietnam, with a digital economy that is growing at a remarkable pace, is an important market for Facebook.

With this campaign, Facebook wants to work more closely with the government, partners, non-profit organizations, and others to help Vietnam quickly recover from the global health crisis while creating opportunities for people to build digital literacy skills, helping businesses grow and creating jobs in the digital economy, she said.

In recent years, Facebook has collaborated with different partners in Vietnam to implement projects that help boost the nation’s socio-economic growth. Such projects include #SheMeansBusiness & “Facebook Community Boost” that provided training and consultation for more than 10,000 small and medium-sized enterprises, including 6,500 businesswomen. In 2019, the “We Think Digital” program offered digital skills training to 244,813 secondary school children and 1,277 teachers in 13 provinces and cities across Vietnam.

Vietnam is among the top 10 countries having the largest Facebook using community, with 47.1 million users.
