Press Conference on the results of the Beijing +10 Conference and the participation of the Vietnamese delegation at the Conference
Posted: Apr 19,2005

A Press Conference was held in the morning of 8th April at the Headquarter of the Central Vietnam Women’s Union. Madame Ha Thi Khiet- the Central Party Committee Member, President of the Vietnam Women’s Union, President of the National Committee for the Advancement of Women in Vietnam attended and led the Press Conference.

Participating were Vice Presidents of the Vietnam Women’s Union, leaders, staffs from different departments of the Central Women’s Union, representatives from ministries/braches and various correspondents and journalists from the Central and local press and News Agencies.


Participants listened to the representatives of the Central Vietnam Women’s Union (VWU) and the National Committee for the Advancement of Women in Vietnam (NCFAW) to present the results of 10 years implementation of Beijing Platform of Action by the Vietnamese Government and NGOs in Vietnam and the participation of the Vietnamese delegation at the BK +10 Conference which took place in New York, America from 28 February to 11th March 2005.


The report emphases that after 10 years implementing the Beijing Platform of Action on gender equality, Vietnam has gained some considerable achievements in this area. Currently, our country ranks the top of the Asian region on women representation in the National Assembly (27,31%), the rate of female members in People’s Council at 3 levels of province, district and commune are respectively of 23,8%, 23,22% and 20,1%. For the last 10 years, Vietnam always has 1 woman as Vice President of the State. Various laws and policies have been improved to ensure the gender equality for women in all aspects of life. However, we are still facing many challenges in the work of gender equality like: the Strategy of Family Planning is not so effectively implemented; the patriaky thinking is still heavy, violence against women is existing....


After the Beijing +10 Conference, VWU is going to develop different activities to promote gender equality such as: formulating the VWU Action Plan to specify Beijing Platform ofAction in the VWU system, formulating and finalizing the Law of Gender Equality to be submitted to the National Assembly, finalizing the Plan of Community Communication on the Prevention against Trafficking in Women and Children to 2010 to be submited to the Government for approval, organizing the VWU National Stimulation Congress, Celebrating 20th years of Vietnam Kovalevskaia Prize, awarding Vietnamese Women’s Prize...all are done towards the goal to promote gender equality and invest into women and women’s empowerment which are the unique tools for development.

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."

(Excerpted from President Ho Chi Minh's speech on the 36th Anniversary of Vietnam Women's Union 20 October 1966)
