Sweden supports UN reform efforts in Vietnam

Hanoi (VNA) - The Embassy of Sweden in Hanoi has announced funding in excess of 1.2 million USD (10 million SEK) to support UN reform efforts in Vietnam.

The funds will help the UN better respond to Vietnam’s changing socio-economic development needs through more coordinated and effective assistance during 2009-2010.

Vietnam is one of eight countries worldwide piloting UN reform at the country level from late 2005.

According to Sweden’s Ambassador to Vietnam, the One UN initiative in Vietnam in particular has so far been well-organised and moved on with impressive pace.

“This process has showed the clear leadership of the Government of Vietnam but has also involved all concerned agencies, donors and other stakeholders in a constructive and transparent fashion,” he said in a press release.

The One UN Initiative in Vietnam was launched to better harmonise the activities of the UN agencies, funds and programmes as a means of achieving greater focus, efficiency and development.

The Initiative is comprised of five key areas: One Leader, One Plan, One Budget, One set of Management Practices and One UN House.
