The Vietnam Industry Agency (VIA) under the Ministry of Industry and Trade has been assigned to lead the linkage agenda and development of supporting industries in Vietnam. IFC and the VIA signed an MOU in October 2017 to undertake this work. Under this project,
IFC will help Vietnam improve its investment and linkage policies and business environment in priority areas as well as enhance the competitiveness of SMEs through piloting a targeted SDP in three targeted value chains. The project seeks to achieve this goal through specific investment policy and business regulatory reforms, training and technical assistance for key stakeholders on linkage development as well as piloting a targeted supplier development program (SDP) in strategic value chains.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC
The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org. You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org/
