PM: Vietnam creates environment conducive to women’s advancement

Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh has affirmed that Vietnam has created an environment conducive to women’s advancement in society.

He made the statement during a meeting with women delegates from all walks of life on the occasion of the 91st anniversary of the Vietnam Women’s Union (VWU) and Vietnamese Women’s Day (October 20).

In his speech, PM Chinh affirmed that throughout history, Vietnamese women have always played special roles. They not only fulfilled their natural functions but also made many feats in the fight for national liberation.

The Vietnamese Party and State always pay attention to policies toward women, he said. The Government leader affirmed that the country has created a favourable environment for women to prove their position and contribute to society.

The Government leader asked the VWU to  continue building a plan to effectively realise the Resolution adopted by the 13th National Party Congress, as well as the directives, resolutions and conclusions on family building in the new context and sustainable poverty reduction by the Politburo, the Party Central Committee and its Secretariat, and encourage women to actively join nationwide emulation campaigns on COVID-19 prevention and control.

VWU Chairwoman Ha Thi Nga said 2021 marks the first year in the Doi Moi (Renewal) period that female lawmakers have made up over 30 percent of the National Assembly, helping Vietnam move up 20 places among the world parliaments and five places in Asia.
