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 new programme, implemented together with the International Labour Organisation and the European Union, the OECD will contribute 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 will be undertaken over 3 years (2018-2020) in partnership with China and five other partner economies, namely Japan, Thailand, Viet Nam, Philippines, and Myanmar.


Responsible supply chains in Viet Nam


Viet Nam participates in the OECD Southeast Asia Regional Programme and has co-operated in several policy reviews with the OECD, notably Investment Policy Reviews (2009 and 2018, forthcoming) and the Review of Agricultural Policies in Viet Nam (2015). 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) as well as garment and footwear sectors.
