The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and Vietnam’s Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI) inked the agreement.

Accordingly, USAID technical assistance activities under this agreement will enhance the capacity of Vietnamese small and growing businesses, including those led by vulnerable populations, by facilitating access to competitiveness-enhancing technology, business management skills, and capital.

The agreement will also foster greater entrepreneurship; enable deeper linkages of Vietnamese startups to corporations, investment capital, and other supporting organizations in the international innovation and startup ecosystems; and strengthen high-quality human capital needed for a robust knowledge-based economy.

This agreement reflects the US’ continued commitment to support Vietnam’s efforts to become a more open, innovative, and inclusive economy, said U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam Daniel J. Kritenbrink.

“Through close collaboration with the Government of Vietnam, we can ensure that USAID’s development assistance will meet our two countries’ mutual vision for a prosperous and independent Vietnam,” the diplomat added.
