VWU Vice President Nguyen Thi Tuyet gives opening remarks

This is the message from the campaign on the occasion of the National Day Against Trafficking in Persons – 30 July organized in Son La city on the morning of 28 July 2018 by the Vietnam Women's Union (VWU) in coordination with the Ministry of Public Security and the People's Committee of Son La province. The event was attended by more than 600 participants.

The National Day Against Trafficking in Persons 30 July was first launched in 2016. This year, communication activities focus on human trafficking through illegal migration. The campaign and other activities on this occasion aimed at raising public awareness and ensuring action by the entire society to stop human trafficking prevention and control, strictly dealing with perpetrators and supporting victims’ safe and sustainable community reintegration.

Between 2011 and 2017, authorities detected and dealt with nearly 2,800 human trafficking cases with more than 4,100 perpetrators and 6,000 victims, 92% of whom were women and children. Most of the victims are unemployed or underemployed residents of rural, remote and border areas.

Trafficking in persons has been strictly dealt with in Vietnam recently. The VWU has actively carried out communication to raise women’s awareness about trafficking and supported local women with livelihood initiatives so as they can settle stably in the localities. In particular, in collaboration with the Border Guard Command, the VWU’s program "Hand in hand with women of border areas" for 2018-2020 periodimplemented in more than 110 border communes will raise women’s awareness and support women’s sustainable livelihoods, which helps reduce the likelihood of women’s illegal migration for employment and marriage.

Addressing at the opening ceremony, VWU Vice President Nguyen Thi Tuyet proposed ministries, local authorities and other mass organizations continue to cooperate with the Women's Union at all levels for stronger efforts in preventing and combating trafficking; focusing on communication and awareness raising on safe migration,counseling forwomen on the procedures when go working abroad and getting married with foreigners, and assisting the returned victims of trafficking.

"... 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)
