The seventh women’s forum of Vietnam and the Republic of Korea (RoK) was held in Hanoi on June 25 by the Vietnam Women’s Union (VWU) and the Korean Women’s Development Institute (KWDI).

The forum focused on safety for women and children towards realising the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In opening the event, President of the VWU Central Committee Nguyen Thi Thu Ha said in the past six years, the forum has provided a venue for women of the two nations to share experience in integrating gender issues in the building of policies and regulations, as well as in women’s development. 

This year, the forum focused on experiences of Vietnam and the RoK to ensure safety for women and children, which is viewed as a significant goal among the SDGs by both countries.

Ha said that the VWU has always paid attention to and act towards safety and development of Vietnamese women and children. She spoke highly of the RoK’s project to create women-friendly cities, which was carried out in various localities, with Seoul capital city being a model at the cost of 708 billion KRW (nearly 600 million USD).

She voiced her belief that information shared by RoK experts at the event will help the VWU enhance safety for Vietnamese women and children. Vietnam is also willing to share experience in the field, she added.

For her part, KWDI President In-sook Kwon said as Vietnam and the RoK have arranged various exchanges in multiple spheres of politics, economy, human resources and culture, the forum not only helps bolster the cooperation between the KWDI and the VWU, but also offers a platform for the countries’ female leaders to meet. 

She expressed her hope that delegates will work to improve policies and regulations to prevent gender-based violence and prejudices in the RoK and Vietnam.- VNA

"... 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 ..."
