The World Bank and the State Bank of Vietnam on Thursday signed a financing agreement and related legal documents for the Higher Education Development Policy Credit valued at US$50 million.
 
The credit is provided by the International Development Association, the arm of the World Bank that helps the world’s poorest countries.


The program as a whole is designed to support implementation of the Vietnamese government’s higher education reform agenda. This operation aims to strengthen governance and accountability, rationalize financing, improve quality of teaching and research, and enhance transparency in financial management within the higher education sector. 


Addressing the signing ceremony, Ms. Victoria Kwakwa, the World Bank Country Director for Vietnam, said: “Further progress in  access to, and quality of education and training at all levels is critical for achieving Vietnam’s development objectives and in particular its objective to build the skills needed to raise the competitiveness of its economy.”
