Strategic Sector Cooperation (SSC)

Strategic Sector Cooperation (SSC) is a partnership between a Danish public authority (DPA) and its Vietnamese partner Ministry. The two partner Ministries have had joint missions in Vietnam to establish the area of intervention. The DPA can support with expertise and facilitate transfer of Danish know-how and experiences relevant to local priority issues, local conditions, and needs. The aim of the SSC is to promote sustainable and responsible growth, jobs and prosperity in Vietnam and eventually create opportunities for Danish businesses.

There are four areas identified for strategic sector cooperation between Vietnam and Denmark: education, health, food safety and statistics. Below you can learn more about the four projects.

Education: Linking vocational education to labour market developments 
The overall aim of the project is to promote a more responsive TVET system in Viet Nam to skills needs and qualification needs in the private sector by developing cooperation between TVET schools and companies and testing measures promoting work based learning in TVET programmes.

Health: Strengthening the Frontline Grassroots Health Worker – Prevention and Management of NCDs at the Primary Health Care Level

The overall aim for this project is to improve the prevention, early detection and management of NCDs in Vietnam through a community and primary healthcare-based approach.

Food Safety: Strategic Sector Cooperation on Food Safety in the Pork Value Chain
The overall aim of the Strategic Sector Cooperation is to contribute to improved feed and food safety in the Vietnamese pork and value chain. This is done through strengthening the regulatory framework for food safety in pork production, focusing on veterinary drug management, feed safety management and capacity building within risk-based food and feed safety management.

Statistics: Improving the quality of official statistics and support production of statistics for sustainable development
The overall thematic focus is to support the General Statistics Office (GSO) in Vietnam to strengthen their capacity for improving the quality, data coverage, data system as well as dissemination and use of official statistics in the Vietnamese society. The project focuses primarily on Environmental Audit, Educational Data, Migration and Big Data.
