Who we are

As a federal enterprise, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH supports the German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development.

GIZ has been working in Viet Nam for more than 20 years. On behalf of the German Government, GIZ provides advisory services to the Government of Viet Nam and is currently engaged in three priority areas, which are Vocational training, Environmental policy and sustainable natural resource use and Energy.

With our Macroeconomic Reforms/ Green Growth Programme, GIZ Viet Nam directly links these priority areas of activity with Viet Nam’s Green Growth Strategy in order to achieve lasting impacts in all sectors and facilitate Viet Nam’s progress towards a sustainable future.

GIZ Viet Nam’s main commissioning party is the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Other commissions come from the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and the Federal Ministry of Finance (BMF). GIZ Viet Nam is also engaged in various projects co-funded by the Australian Government (Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade – DFAT) and the European Union and cooperates closely with the German development bank KfW.
