Governance for Inclusive Growth
OSC is supporting strategic communications and advocacy initiatives in order to further economic growth in Vietnam by fostering more transparent and inclusive local government. OSC is building the capacity of civil society organizations and private sector partners for targeted public outreach and communications. OSC’s capacity building includes training in stakeholder mapping, audience segmentation, and message development to increase transparency in the economic and legal regulatory environment. OSC is also developing “hands on” workshops for members of the media to improve the quality of reporting, and the relationship between the government and media, to enhance oversight and evaluation. In addition, OSC will create forums for the public and CSOs to meet with government officials to generate greater participation and input into economic decision-making. OSC is working to address challenges, requirements, and opportunities related to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) by organizing policy forums and workshops featuring presentations, dialogue, information, and analysis of TPP.
