Promoting Responsible Supply Chains in Viet Nam



About the project


The OECD has worked with key Asian partners for a number of years to promote responsible investment and RBC. Under this programme, implemented together with the International Labour Organisation and the European Union, the OECD contributed its extensive expertise on trade and investment and on risk-based RBC due diligence to support in-country policy developments and action to create an enabling environment for Responsible Business Conduct (RBC), to boost industry capacity and to raise awareness of the importance of RBC.


The programme took place over 4 years (2018-2022) in partnership with Japan and five other partner economies, namely China, Thailand, Viet Nam, the Philippines, and Myanmar.


Responsible supply chains in Viet Nam

Viet Nam has been participating in the OECD Southeast Asia Regional Programme since its launch in 2014 and has co-operated in several policy reviews with the OECD, notably Investment Policy Reviews (2009 and 2018, forthcoming), the Clean Energy Finance (2021), and the Viet Nam Economic Review (forthcoming). Viet Nam also participates in the OECD-Southeast Asia Corporate Governance Initiative. Engagement with businesses will include activities in the agriculture (with a focus on seafood), garment and footwear sectors, and building resilient supply chains.
