The project also aims to improve SMEs’ access to markets in about 20 targeted communities in Tra Vinh province by building priority small-scale infrastructure such as waste treatment facilities, inter-village roads and bridges to improve rural transportation.


The project is being funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD-Canada), which will see over CAD$11M going towards the project. Funding is to be implemented over the period of 2014 – 2020.

The project, based on Canadian approaches but adapted to the Vietnamese context, is a successful model in Vietnam.”


Dr. Khanh added that the model has demonstrated a significant commitment of the two countries in implementing the project.
