MoF, UNDP launch financial policy analysis project
Ha Noi - The Ministry of Finance and the United Nations Development Programme today inaugurated a new financial policy analysis capacity-building project at a ceremony in Ha Noi attended by government officials and representatives from the donor community in Viet Nam. The three-year project, entitled Strengthening capacity in financial policy analysis for human development, aims to raise financial analysis skills in government to improve the crafting and monitoring of socioeconomic development policy.
Vice Minister of Finance Ms. Le Thi Bang Tam expressed confidence that the project would have far-reaching impact: “As government capabilities in analysis grow, we can expect that future financial policies will quicken the development of a modern financial system in Viet Nam. This important activity will also support progress on other initiatives, such as poverty reduction and sustainable economic growth.”
The project will include such components as budget analysis training, research work on pro-poor budgeting, an executive training programme for MPs and provincial councils, the development of an e-library to support policy analysis and documentation, and policy formulation training for younger ministry staff. There will also be a general push for increased cross-ministry and central-local flows of information, dialogue, and exchanges on financial matters.
UNDP Resident Representative, Mr. Jordan Ryan noted the link between strengthening analytical capacities in the financial reform area with broader development planning: “This important project aims to ensure that financial policies and regulations positively impact people’s lives. Building on a collaborative approach, we aim to help the Ministry of Finance to enhance its capacities, tools, and knowledge so that it may analyze, review, and implement financial policy that boosts human development.”
In the area of public finance, the Party and the government have resolved to remove irrational policies on debt and state credit, increase state budget investment efficiency, and continue renovating financial markets. Mr. Ryan observed, “Sound policy analysis is an unshakeable foundation for meaningful reform. Therefore, we look to the project’s success as a complement to the public finance modernization effort, as well as to other reforms underway that are integral to Viet Nam’s international integration and pro-poor growth process.”

- #SDG5: Gender Equality - 06 days to Rio 2016 (português abaixo) "The dance brought to the community an opportunity of cultural dialogue. It became very clear to us that social change can happen inside and outside the slum. Community dancers did not have the same opportunities as dancers that lives in the asphalt: neither to teach, attend classes, nor even to attend the presentations. So we created the 'Favela in Dança', to enhance our territory! We want the slum being seen as a stage for art and entertainment. It is a little ant work that grows every day. To join, you don´t need to be teacher or student: just need to be curious and have the desire to change, dance, make a difference." – Ingrid David De Carvalho, 28 years old ---- #ODS5: Igualdade de Gênero - Contagem regressiva para Rio 06 dias! "A dança trouxe para a comunidade uma oportunidade de diálogo cultural. Ficou muito claro para a gente que transformações sociais podem acontecer dentro e fora da favela. Os dançarinos da comunidade não tinham as mesmas oportunidades que os do asfalto: nem de dar aulas, frequentá-las, ou mesmo de assistir a espetáculos. Por isso, criamos o ‘Favela in Dança’, para valorizar nosso território! Queremos que a favela seja vista como palco de arte e entretenimento. É um trabalho de formiguinha que cresce a cada dia. Para fazer parte, não precisa ser professor ou aluno: basta ser curioso e ter vontade de mudar, dançar, fazer a diferença." – Ingrid David, 28 anos #humansofrio #humansofmyworld #rio2016 #favelaemdança Favela em Dança.
