Facts about Norway
Norway has provided over 2.8 billion Krone of ODA to Vietnam (USD 320 million). As Vietnam successfully develops into a middle-income country, this has significantly changed the historical relationship between the two countries. Norway and Vietnam are no longer donor and recipient countries, but equal partners, bilaterally and multilaterally.
