Founded in 1963, the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) is a national organization that assembles and represents the business community, employers, and business associations of all economic sectors in Vietnam. The mission of VCCI is to protect and assist business enterprises, to contribute to the socio-economic development of the country, and to promote economic, commercial, and technological cooperation between Vietnam and other countries in the world.
VCCI’s two main functions are: (i) representing the Vietnamese business community through the promotion and protection of the lawful, legitimate interests of Vietnamese enterprises and employers in domestic and international relations; and (ii) promoting the development of business enterprises, facilitating cooperation among business entities, and offering assistance in trade and investment, economic and technical cooperation as well as other business activities of enterprises in Vietnam and abroad.

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is an independent federal agency that provides economic, development and humanitarian assistance around the world in support of U.S. foreign policy goals. USAID started its assistance in Vietnam in 1989 when it launched programs benefiting Vietnamese with disabilities through the Patrick Leahy War Victims Fund and the Displaced Children and Orphans Fund.
Currently, USAID programs in Vietnam support the country’s progress by focusing resources where they’re needed most in health, private sector competitiveness, environment, social services for vulnerable populations and higher education. USAID played a key role in helping Vietnam reach out to global markets through its accession to the World Trade Organization and the Vietnam-U.S. Bilateral Trade Agreement. In partnership with the Government of Vietnam, USAID continues to promote greater market integration through its support for the Trans-Pacific Partnership under negotiation. USAID also supports efforts to strengthen the rule of law and improves economic governance while seeking to further Vietnam’s integration into the global economy as it continues its transition to a market-driven system. Working with the Government of Vietnam, USAID promotes transparency in law making, accountability, access to information and increased competiveness.
