The story started 40 years ago.
The Government of Viet Nam – UNDP partnership officially started in 1978, when there was a very limited foreign presence in the country. Since then, UNDP has stood side-by-side with Viet Nam as it began its development trajectory from a poor nation devastated by war to a lower middle income country championing poverty reduction and leading in growth. UNDP has been working closely with the Government of Viet Nam and other partners to expand the choices for people and ensure that everyone has equal access to opportunities to realize their full potential.
