Abstract:

Although directed toward providing support for combat operations, US construction programs have had a significant effect on the nation-building efforts of South Vietnam. Contractors and engineer troop units have trained thousands of Vietnamese in a wide variety of construction skills. U. S. investment in the highway program and in the development of ports and airfields has already enhanced the Vietnamese economy and will make an even greater contribution in the future. In addition, the many facilities built for military forces will when turned over to Vietnam after U. S. withdrawal have great economic value to the Republic.
