Programme Officer (Macro C3)


As a federal enterprise, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH supports the German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development. On behalf of the German Government, GIZ currently provides advisory services to the Government of Viet Nam in three priority areas: Vocational training, Environmental policy and sustainable use of natural resources, and Energy. For further information, please visit .

With the “Macroeconomic Reform/Green Growth-Programme”, GIZ directly links these priority areas of activity with Viet Nam’s Green Growth Strategy in order to achieve lasting impacts in all sectors and facilitate Viet Nam’s progress towards a sustainable future.

The programme aims at two principle objectives: (i) The Government of Viet Nam implements measures and actions which are well-oriented to support the environmentally and socially responsible growth in the framework of Vietnam’s Green Growth Strategy; and (ii) the macroeconomic stability is improved and capacity of government agencies is enhanced for better implementation of economic and social policies thereby contributing to the equitable and sustainable growth process in Viet Nam.

In this regard, the programme supports the Ministry of Finance (MoF) of Viet Nam on behalf of the Delegation of the European Union (DEU) to Viet Nam within the framework of the Programme “Enhancing Economic Governance in Viet Nam“ to strengthen fiscal discipline, strategic allocation of resources and domestic revenue mobilisation, accountability and transparency of public finance to foster sustainable development and inclusive growth including a business friendly environment in Viet Nam.
