In September 2022, a delegation by VUFO's leader visited France and worked with AFD on strengthening people-to-people cooperation between the two countries. Following the results of that meeting, AFD hopes the discussed orientation will be quickly realized in supporting French NGOs operating in Vietnam, said Herve Conan. Through these programs, AFD will support Vietnam to improve the policy implementation capacity and operational capacity of local NGOs.
According to Nicolas Le Guen, Head of AFD's Non-Governmental Cooperation Department, during their business trip to Vietnam, the delegation surveyed the activities and recorded opinions of French NGOs in Vietnam that receive ADF support. Generally, organizations operate actively and cooperate effectively with local partners. However, there are still difficulties in implementing administrative procedures and activities.
Nguyen Ngoc Hung, Vice Chairman of the Viet Nam Union of Friendship Organizations, said Vietnam's Party, Government, and State attach great importance to non-governmental work and consistently advocate creating favorable conditions for their activities.
Currently, nearly 50 French NGOs are operating in Vietnam, of which about 10 receive AFD support. These are organizations with high professionalism and operational efficiency. VUFO highly appreciates AFD's role in supporting, guiding, connecting, and providing resources for NGOs. Recognizing the difficulties and problems that French NGOs face, VUFO agreed to continue supporting organizations in their activities in Vietnam.
The two sides agreed to promote cooperation, exchange information, and share experiences in working with NGOs, localities, and donors. They also agree to cooperate to answer questions from organizations and coordinate in organizing business trips, conferences, seminars, and expert exchanges.
