UNDP Vietnam is seeking for 01 qualified Vietnamese consultancy firm to support the formulation of the Program for supporting and encouraging private sector enterprises in the 2021-2025 period with a vision to 2030.
Viet Nam is a lower middle-income country (LMIC) with a gross domestic product (GDP) per capita of $2,109. Viet Nam’s Millennium Development Goals performance was exceptional, with most targets met in full and many ahead of time. Viet Nam has recently also enjoyed one of the most successful transitions from central planning to a market economy with a GDP growth rate of 6.7 per cent. The Government’s Socio-Economic Development Plan (SEDP) 2016-2020 projected that this level of economic growth will be maintained.
United Nations (UN) Member States adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with a set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at its core at the UN Summit on 25-27 September 2015. Together with other member states, Viet Nam has committed to the 2030 Agenda and the Government of Viet Nam (GoV) has also approved the National Action Plan (NAP) on the Implementation of SDGs issued by Prime Minister’s Decision No.622/QĐ-/TTg dated 10 May 2017. It is widely accepted that the private sector has a crucial role to play in achieving the SDGs as it is the growth engine in most countries, contributing to poverty eradication by creating income and wealth, and directly generating employment, providing affordable goods and services. On average, the private sector accounts for 60 percent of GDP, 80 percent of capital flows, and 90 percent of jobs in developing countries.
The overall objective of this assignment is to support MPI to formulate a program for supporting and encouraging private sector enterprise to move towards sustainable business and inclusive models, cleaner production technologies, efficiently exploit resources and protect the environment in the 2021-2025 period.
The selection will be based on a competitive basis and will comply with UNDP procurement regulations. Request for Proposal with enclosed TOR and evaluation criteria as well as Submission forms are attached.
