Founded in 2005, the Center for Development and Integration (CDI) works to ensure that Vietnam’s social and economic development benefits all of its citizens. The CDI believes that promoting good governance will result in a more equitable society where the rights of all people are respected. A society in where the poor are respected and supported even as Vietnam plays an increasingly larger role in the global economy. CDI’s objectives are to:

  • provide high quality services supporting development and integration issues in Vietnam and in southeast regions;
  • actively participate in the promotion of sustainable socioeconomic development of the poor through poverty reduction, job creation, and business development; and
  • link with development partners in research, knowledge and information management and advocacy.
