Tóm tắt: This report is one of three reports commissioned by Sida to an independent team toreview the development co-operation to countries in Asia, (also Sri Lanka and Laos), where Sweden is, or has, phased out. It summarises experiences and lessons of this co-operation. This report was predated by an earlier, preparatory phase in 2009 that was to comprehensively document and describe this co-operation. It is also complemented by asynthesis report, which not only compiles the lessons and summarises the three country reports, but also comparatively analyses the conclusions and lessons. The relationship between Sweden and Vietnam, which has evolved over more than 40 years, has very much been based on development co-operation. This evaluation provides an overview of the years between 1969 and 2011. Sweden has been involved in many areas during this time, from the early years in health, humanitarian support and forestry to research, human rights and democracy and anti-corruption in the later years. The evaluators conclude that Swedish development co-operation contributed to lifting millions of Vietnamese out of poverty. This is a bold statement, but important here are the lessons that allow the consultant to make such a statement. This includes co-operation with the government, which also trusted Sweden to lead the work in anticorruption, but also initiate other politically sensitive democracy programs. The evaluators highlightSweden’s “special” relationship with Vietnam as decisive in forging what they consider to be a successful development cooperation program, that was responsive to the development needs of the country, effective and efficient delivery of aid, and that assisted in providing the conditions for sustained poverty reduction, as demonstrated especially by Sweden’s support to Vietnam’s extensive economic reforms. The report clearly shows that Sweden has been appreciated for this.
