A delegation of the Vietnam Women’s Union (VWU) led by its Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Thu Ha paid a visit to Italy on March 21-26.

While in Italy, the delegation attended working sessions with Secretary-General of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Elisabetta Belloni, President of the Foreigner and European Affairs Committee of the Chamber of Deputies Marta Grande, along with leaders of the Italian Prime Minister’s office on equality.

At the sessions, Ha informed her hosts on socio-economic achievements of Vietnam over the years, along with the VWU and its concerns.

The two sides expressed their delight as the Vietnam-Italy strategic partnership has enjoyed positive developments since its establishment in 2013.

They agreed to continue to exchange information and experiences on issues of gender equality and female human resources, as well as to connect and build the cooperation between the VWU and Italian partners.

The Vietnamese delegation also discussed the ASEAN-Italy High-level Dialogue with leaders of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which is scheduled to take place in Hanoi this June. They consented to study the possibility of organising an event on the sidelines of the dialogue.

At the session with leaders of Italian Prime Minister’s office on equality, the delegation spoke highly of Italy’s achievements in bolstering women rights.

Italy is among countries of the European Union with highest number of female members in the parliament, only after Northern European nations. The rate of female leaders in listed private companies in Italy currently stands at 33.5 percent.

"... 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)
