Position Description
Agency: DFAT
Position number: 11634
Title: Senior Program Manager, Economic Ingegration
Classification: LE6
Section: Development Cooperation
Reports to (title) First Secretary Economic Integration

The role of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) is to advance the interests of Australia and Australians internationally. This involves strengthening Australia’s security, enhancing Australia’s prosperity, delivering an effective and high quality overseas aid program and helping Australian travellers and Australians overseas.
The department provides foreign, trade and development policy advice to the Australian Government. DFAT also works with other Australian government agencies to drive coordination of Australia’s pursuit of global, regional and bilateral interests.

Australia’s aid program to Vietnam is centred on priorities that have been jointly agreed with the Government of Vietnam, building on our past experience and where our resources can most effectively and efficiently be deployed. The Vietnam country strategy for the 2010 – 2015 period is focussed on economic integration (economic reform and infrastructure); human resource development; and environmental sustainability (water and sanitation and climate change). These areas are considered as critical in helping Vietnam to reduce poverty and navigate the challenges of its middle income years as it strives to become an industrialised country. A new country strategy covering the period post-2015 will commence development in late 2014.

The Aid Program has policy and programmatic linkages at Post with DFAT, AFP, AEI, Austrade and DIAC. ACIAR is a close partner.
