Swedish gives Vietnam 2.5 Mill. US-dollars

Sweden will provide 24.5 million Swedish krona (US$2.5 million) in non-refundable aid to Vietnam to help the latter implement a ten-year
socio-economic development strategy (2001-2010) and study anti-corruption solutions.
Two agreements to this effect were signed in Hanoi yesterday by Deputy Minister of Planning and Investment Vu Huy Hoang and Swedish Ambassador to Vietnam Marie Sjolander.
Under the agreements, aimed at increasing Vietnam’s capacity to study ways and means to implement the above strategy and solutions, related projects will be implemented to provide consultancy to the Government and concerned
ministries and agencies on creating policies for integration, trade and finance.
Other projects to assess the current state of corruption in Vietnam and help the Party and Government intensify the fight against this phenomenon will also be carried out.
Apart from investment projects in the areas of healthcare, energy, forestry, the paper industry and agricultural development, the Swedish government has continuously given technical assistance to Vietnam during its economic and
administrative reforms as well as its reforms in taxation, statistics, macro-economic policy making, administrative management and law.
