Program Background

The USAID Trade Facilitation Program (2018-2023) is supporting the Government of Vietnam to develop a more attractive trade and investment climate for enterprises, traders, and investors. The Program works with the General Department of Vietnam Customs to strengthen the capacity of Vietnam's National Trade Facilitation Committee, enhance national and provincial coordination, and facilitate dialogue between customs authorities and the business community.

Through our support to facilitate international trade, the Program is helping to improve the business environment, making it easier for enterprises and investors – both international and domestic – to do business in Vietnam. This, in turn, is contributing to Vietnam’s national competitiveness, bringing the benefits of trade and increased prosperity to the Vietnamese people.

Activity Background

As the Program enters its final year, the Communications team is developing a range of communications products to bring the various Program activities together into one compelling story. As Program activities span several components, these products will enable our partners and stakeholders – as well as other audiences – to gain a ‘big-picture’ perspective of the Program, its activities, and its achievements. The communications products will be disseminated to stakeholders via several media channels and at program events.

The consultant will support the production of the following communications products: 01 24-page brochure on the work and impact of the Program; 05 2-page briefs on key Program work areas; and 10 stand-alone info graphics.
