We have been working with UNIDO since 2009, developing the National Business Registration System (NBRS). We are proud to be a part of the successful reform, which has improved the business environment in Viet Nam.
Business registration reforms are among the priorities of the Government of Viet Nam to further improve the country’s business environment. Correspondingly, one of the areas of ongoing UNIDO assistance concerns support to improve the processes and procedures involved in starting a business in Viet Nam.
UNIDO has issued a quite comprehensive report on the BRR in Vietnam. This publication constitutes a situation analysis of the BRR reforms in Viet Nam and UNIDO’s assistance in this field. The report is aimed at
- Enhancing the visibility, both domestically and abroad, of business registration reforms (BRR) undertaken in Viet Nam;
- Putting these reforms and their results within the context of wider business environment reforms in Viet Nam and also positioning Viet Nam globally in this regard;
- Summarizing and sharing the main achievements to date in the implementation of the UNIDO BRR support in order to foster exchange of experiences and learning.
The report is structured as follows:
- Section I gives a brief overview of the rationale for BRR and also puts the theme in its context, as it constitutes an integral part of wider business environment reforms. This section also gives a general description of global experiences and good practice in this field.
- Section II covers a synthesis of the reform path taken by Viet Nam and presents some facts and figures that show the trend and the current positioning of the country within the broader scope of BRR.
- Section III starts with the background of the UNIDO support, followed by an overview of its intentions and related achievements thanks to sizeable donor support. This section also makes reference to relevant assistance of other development partners related to business environment reforms including business registration.
- Section IV presents the steps ahead and also describes the main challenges faced in the ongoing support for the remainder of the project duration. In addition, the scope for widening exchange and learning in this field, based on the experience in Viet Nam, is discussed.
