U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam Daniel J. Kritenbrink said of the agreement, “This agreement reflects the United States` continued commitment to support Vietnam`s efforts to achieve a more open, innovative and inclusive economy. By working closely with the Vietnamese government, we can ensure that USAID`s development assistance meets our two countries` shared vision for a prosperous and independent Vietnam. Examples of projects supported by democracy offices are projects for the country`s political institutions, including elections, political parties, legislators and human rights organizations. Partners include the judiciary sector and civil society organizations that oversee government performance. Aid to democracy received its greatest impetus at the time of the creation of the states of the USSR from about 1990, which corresponded both to USAID`s goal of supporting the United States. USAID`s bilateral interests and socio-economic development objective. While the mission director is the public face and the main decision-maker of an impressive set of USAID technical skills, support offices are likely the “support offices” of U.S. government agencies in the ability to implement aid agreements in low-income countries.
Finally, the science and technology agreement maintains the U.S. commitment to joint research between U.S. and Egyptian scientists. USAID`s work in this area focuses on development challenges and fosters economic growth, with a focus on applied scientific research and technology commercialization. This funding agreement would take the form of a letter from the USAID Mission Director, countersigned by the recipient agency, indicating the Agency`s objectives, the amount of USAID`s financial commitment, the specific expenses to be funded by the USAID grant, and other operational aspects of the agreement. Through the Agreement on Higher Education, America supports Egypt`s priority in orienting graduates` skills to market needs. USAID`s work in this new agreement will also help increase the capacity of Egyptian higher education institutions to help solve Egypt`s development challenges. The Trade and Investment Agreement facilitates the current partnership between USAID and the Egyptian government in creating a business environment in which the private sector can grow and become more competitive. This partnership focuses in particular on promoting inclusion and sustainability for micro, small and medium-sized enterprises, focusing on small enterprises that offer specific jobs for young people and women.
USAID`s technical assistance under this agreement will enhance the capabilities of Vietnamese and growing small businesses, including those run by vulnerable populations, by facilitating access to competitive technologies, economic capacity, and capital. . . .
