The New Zealand Aid Programme in Viet Nam

Vietnam is one of the New Zealand Aid Programme's core bilateral partners. New Zealand's development assistance is governed by a 10 year country strategy, covering the period 2007-2016. The overall goal of the strategy is to support sustainable development through improving rural livelihoods and basic education opportunities, especially for poor and marginalised people.

Support is given to Vietnam at both national and provincial levels. The current New Zealand Aid Programme's project portfolio includes:

  • Binh Dinh Sustainable Rural Livelihoods: Linking Poor Rural Households to Markets with a total budget of USD $2,138,000 from 1/7/2010 until 1/12/2013.
  • Avian Influenza Surveillance Systems with a total budget of USD $1,533,494 for within the period of 2007 until 2011.
  • Vietnam Land Administration Project with approved funding of NZD $7.5 million for a period of five years from 2010 until 2015.
  • Gia Lai Early Childhood Care and Education with approved funding of NZD $7.5 million for a period of five years from 2010 until 2015.

The New Zealand Aid Programme is also providing US $4 million over four years (2007-2010) to the One Plan Fund of the United Nations in Viet Nam.  In addition, it provided approximately US $4 million for the Poverty Reduction Support Credit (PRSC) 7th and 8th.

New Zealand also provides scholarships for post graduate study in New Zealand and Vietnamese officials attend the English Language Training for Officials (ELTO). This is a five month course which is held twice a year.
