Vietnam actively participates in APEC Women Leaders Network
The woman activist revealed that
Over the past years, the Vietnam Women's Union Central Committee has implemented strategies and programmes to help women open and run their business, so as to realise the WLN's objective of including gender issues into the APEC's projects and policies, as well as providing women with more exchange and cooperation opportunities in the APEC.
Women's unions at all levels have made proposals to the State regarding the making of laws and policies to ensure that gender issues receive due attention.
They have taken advantage of domestic and foreign resources to organise training courses for women on business skills, legal and professional knowledge.
The organisations have also worked to help women access credit loans for production development, trade promotion and market expansion.
