Poverty Reduction through Productive Activities
Benchmarking Viet Nam’s training system for manufacturing skills
The project contributes to the development of an internationally competitive industrial training system that corresponds to the urgent need of Viet Nam’s industry to climb up the technology ladder and create more jobs in high-added value manufacturing.
Strengthen the supply capacity of the fruits and vegetable sector by introducing proper technologies along the value chain
The project supports the Government to implement its National Target Program on New Rural Development. UNIDO provides small-holders with the necessary technologies, conservation and value-addition skills that can increase their income.
Supporting Viet Nam's pharmaceutical production
The project supports the Government of Viet Nam in its efforts to increase the availability of locally produced, essential quality medicines for the population at large and strengthen Viet Nam’s pharmaceutical industry.
Expansion of the national business registration system (NBRS) to new business entities
The project follows a previous project funded by NORAD, SECO, OPF and UNIDO, which established a National Business Registration System (NBRS). The new phase seeks to expand and consolidate previous results and, by 2017, enable the ABR and BROs to provide accurate, legally binding information on commercial entities to the business community, government agencies and the general public.
Helping Vietnamese SMEs adapt and adopt corporate social responsibility (CSR)
The overall objective of the project is to improve the environmental and social performance of Vietnamese SMEs in global supply chains through the increased awareness, understanding and adoption of Triple Bottom line corporate social responsibility.
Overcoming policy, market and technological barriers to support technological innovation and south-south technology transfer
The project aims to remove barriers and create a conducive environment for the promotion of ethanol production technologies and South-South technology transfer.
Platform for investment monitoring and supplier development
The project aims to strengthen the national institutions' and private sector's capacity to monitor and manage investment flows by establishing a web-based investment monitoring platform. It will further equip the manufacturing sector to present itself as a viable and competitive supplier base for global enterprises through a supplier benchmarking and subcontracting exchange (SPX) unit.
Environment and Energy
Implementation of eco-industrial park initiative for sustainable industrial zones
