Short-term Quality Infrastructure Expert

ARISE + Viet Nam is seeking to recruit various short-term experts for implementation of the Project Annual Work Plan Year 1 (2021-2022)

“The ASEAN Regional Integration Support by EU (ARISE) Plus – Viet Nam Trade-Related Technical Assistance (ARISE+ Viet Nam)” is a European Union-funded project. The overall objective of the ARISE+ Viet Nam project is inclusive economic growth and poverty reduction in Viet Nam, while the specific objective of the project is to provide technical assistance to the Vietnamese Government to maximise Viet Nam’s benefits from preferential trade regimes, with a focus on regional trade agreements and the EU-Viet Nam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) and the EU-Viet Nam Investment Protection Agreement (EVIPA). DAI Human Dynamics is implementing this project together with consortium partners: VCCI, Eurocham and Gopa.

ARISE + Viet Nam is implementing activity QI 1. The primary objective of this activity is to provide all the relevant information on the EU “New Approach” to technical directives and regulations, and particularly on the CE marking rules, regulations and requirements in general, relevant to the potential Viet Nam’s exporters and other stakeholders not only of the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) but also of all other products with good potential to be exported from Viet Nam to the EU and other countries.

Activity QI 1 will facilitate exports, with a potential for enhancing the level of compliance and lowering technical barriers to trade for the enterprises wanting to export from Viet Nam to EU.
