IESC is USAID’s implementing partner on the Linkages for Small and Medium Enterprises (LinkSME) project. USAID LinkSME focuses on enhancing the business-enabling environment and creating opportunities for small and medium enterprises in Vietnam. The project runs from September 2018 to September 2023.
Working closely with the Office of the Government and other agencies, USAID LinkSME enhances the business enabling environment by:
• Reducing compliance costs of business by promoting institutional reform, and streamlining regulations and administrative procedures;
• Improving government-to-business interactions by supporting, among other things, the modernization and digitalization of government one-stop shop service centers.
Working closely with the Ministry of Planning and Investment and various business support organizations, LinkSME facilitates opportunities for Vietnamese SMEs by:
• Building their capacity to meet the exacting demands of lead firms;
• Facilitating the establishment of longer-term supply relationships between Vietnamese SMEs and lead firms.
