Our employment service supported economic policy development, teaching, and collaboration among countries in the Lower Mekong Region.

Enabling Public Policy Education and Training in Vietnam

We were able to provide employment for a federally-funded Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) project in Vietnam thanks to a Vietnamese government decree and an agreement between the University of Economics Ho Chi Minh City (UEH) and HKS. The decree permitted the cooperation of foreign universities with Vietnamese universities to provide joint educational programming. In 1994, HKS and UEH registered and received approval for their program, the Fulbright Economics Teaching Program, with Vietnam's Ministry of Education and Training.

Although we don't have a legal entity in Vietnam, the decree enabled us to support program-related activities; this included hiring expatriate workers and providing exemption from certain employer and employee local income tax regulations so that we could employ and pay via our U.S. entity.
