Market and Funding Analysis in Vietnam
CARE International (CI) has maintained a presence in Vietnam since 1989 and established a positive reputation with numerous development stakeholders and beneficiaries in the country. Now that Vietnam has progressed to the status of low middle-income country and a vibrant civil society has emerged in Vietnam, the time has come to re-assess CI’s role and determine the most appropriate operational model to achieve impact and cost-effectiveness in the future. In order to make an informed decision on the best structure and means of operation within the fast-changing context in Vietnam, CI Vietnam has commissioned the Vietnam-based MCG Management Consulting company to conduct a market analysis. Christian Schoen from Mesopartner was subcontracted as international expert. The study, conducted in the first quarter of 2018, takes a specific view on the demand and need for development services sought after by the private sector, which are relevant to CI Vietnam’s program and expertise, the funding size and availability in this market segment and CI Vietnam’s potential position in this market.
