INDIA-VIETNAM DEVELOPMENT PARTNERSHIP


India has a long-standing development partnership with Vietnam that has made positive contributions towards capacity building, Sustainable Development Goals and socio-economic development of Vietnam. India has also been providing assistance to Vietnam within the ASEAN framework.

Quick Impact Projects


Under the Mekong Ganga Cooperation (MGC) framework, India has been taking up Quick Impact Projects (QIPs), each valued at US$50,000, in different provinces of Vietnam for development of community infrastructure. With their short gestation period, the QIPs bring direct benefits to communities at the grassroots level. During the Virtual Summit between the Prime Ministers of India and Vietnam on 21 December 2020, it was decided to raise the number of QIP projects from 05 to 10 per year to be implemented annually in Vietnam. So far, since 2017, 27 QIPs have been completed in 28 provinces of Vietnam, while 10 new projects are under implementation in 10 provinces.  In addition, 7 grant-in-aid assistance projects for the benefit of the Cham community in Ninh Thuan province were completed in December 2020 with an outlay of around US$ 1.54 million.  


Capacity Building Cooperation, Training Programmes and Scholarships


As part of capacity building support under the Indian Technical and Economic Cooperation (ITEC) programme, India has offered short-term courses in Indian institutions to nearly 3000 Vietnamese participants over the years. Separately, Indian Council of Cultural Relations offers nearly 50 scholarships for Vietnamese scholars every year. Vietnamese students are also availing of the recent initiative of Government of India launched in October 2019 to offer PhD fellowship programme in association with 23 IITs for 1000 students from ASEAN countries. Vietnam is also among our partner countries with whom we have on-going e-ITEC programmes.


Cultural Conservation Projects in Vietnam


India is providing technical assistance worth US$ 2.25 million for conservation and restoration of ancient Cham monuments at the World heritage Site of My Son in Quang Nam Province of Vietnam, showcasing the deep civilizational connection between the two countries. The conservation work is being carried out by the experts from the Archaeological Survey of India. EVENTS/NEWS A. Facebook Links
