2019 Vietnam Industry White Paper presented

The Ministry of Industry and Trade presented the first ever Viet Nam Industry White Paper, which analyses and evaluates the current status of manufacturing and processing industries in the country while identifying key macro and sub-sector issues and suggesting policy recommendations.

“The White Paper provides policy makers, researchers and companies with useful information about different industries in Viet Nam and effective toolkits to be used for industrial policy analysis and planning”, said Vice Minister of Industry and Trade Do Thang Hai.

The White Paper was developed within the framework of the UNIDO project “Support to the Government of Viet Nam in the formulation of Sub-Sector Industrial Strategy and of the related Implementation Policy through Institutional Capacity Building”, which aims at contributing to industrial upgrading and competitiveness with funds from the Republic of Korea.

“We congratulate the Ministry of Industry and Trade and UNIDO for their successful collaboration and the design of the Viet Nam Industry White Paper 2019”, said Korean Commercial Attache Kim Eui Joong. “The Republic of Korea is ready to continue to share its experience with Viet Nam in general, and with the Ministry of Industry and Trade in particular”.

UNIDO has been boosting the industrial development strategies and policies of Viet Nam through institutional capacity building; designing industrial reports for public and private sector; proposing sub-sector strategies and policies.

“UNIDO is very honored to provide technical support to the Ministry of Industry and Trade to help further consolidate industrial policymaking capacity”, said UNIDO Country Representative Le Thi Thanh Thao. “We hope that UNIDO’s toolkits and the recently launched Industrial Analytics Platform will be further used to formulate and design evidence-based strategies and policies”.
