This report, written in partnership with the ILO, is an input into a broader report examining the implications of an expanded tax-financed benefits regime in Viet Nam. The report aims to support the Government of Viet Nam’s efforts to implement the Master Plan for Social Assistance Reform and Development (MPSARD) and the Master Plan for Social Insurance Reform (MPSIR).
Setting out to determine the adequacy of tax-financed benefits in Viet Nam, the report offers a range of options to preserve their value into the future. The analysis has focused on three core lifecycle benefits – child, disability and old age – in line with the lifecycle approach adopted in the MPSARD.
