DSIK is implementing project activities in Vietnam since 2005. Over time, DSIK worked with partner institutions to contribute to the betterment of the country.

This involves:

  • financial literacy,
  • capacity development
  • gender equality, and
  • improving the financial education of the rural population.

DSIK works and collaborates with different partners in the financial sector, at ministerial level and in the university environment.

These include:

  • the State Bank of Vietnam (SBV) with
    • the Vietnam Banking Academy (VBA),
    • the Banking University Ho Chi Minh City (HUB) and
    • the Vietnam Bank for Social Policies (VBSP),
  • the Vietnam Women’s Union with
    • the Vietnam Women's Academy (VWA),
  • and the Vietnam National University (VNU), in particular the University for Economics and Business (UEB),
  • and other partners.

The project activities made an important contribution to the Financial Inclusion Strategy. Together with the State Bank of Vietnam, valuable contributions such as radio programs, educational events and practical business games were implemented. In addition, DSIK was able to bring World Savings Day to Vietnam together with the universities and, with the help of stock market learning, put the topic of investments on the agenda of Vietnamese students.

Lecturers at selected universities (VNU, VBA, BUH and VWA) were trained in appropriate methods of imparting knowledge, thus promoting the development of personnel capacities for financial institutions in Vietnam. DSIK was supporting the Vietnam Women’s Union in professionalizing its microfinance and microinsurance activities.

Within the framework of the current BMZ project "Transformation to a sustainable, resilient agricultural system and to a social-ecological financial system in Bhutan, Laos and Vietnam", talks are being held with partner institutions in Vietnam in order to continue to advance the important issues in the future.
