Viet Nam has seen great progress in economic and social development, yet increasing disparities are emerging. In this phase of Viet Nam's development – rapid international integration, ever-increasing GDP and a goal to reach middle income status by 2010 – the priority is to ensure that this growth is inclusive.
UNDP supports Viet Nam's commitment to socially-inclusive development with policy advice and assistance to strengthen its institutions and rule of law so that all people benefit from development. Key focus areas of our support include: strengthening elected bodies such as the National Assembly; accelerating legal and public administration reforms; reducing socio-economic inequality; protecting the environment; and natural disaster management.
