The strategy aims to strengthen Australia's efforts in promoting gender equality, women and girls' empowerment, social integration of persons with disabilities, ethnic minority groups, and LGBTI group.

Addressing the event, Australian Ambassador Andrew Goledzinowski said that as Viet Nam has set a target of becoming a high-income country by 2045, it will need to find new sources of growth and resilience, while also ensuring sustainability.

Ensuring that all segments of the society can participate in the economy and reach their full potential will be essential to Viet Nam's next stage of development, he stressed.

The diplomat said that the strategy aims to reaffirm the two countries' commitments in many areas, including human rights, women's leadership, safety and economic empowerment, and so on.

The promotion of equality allows Vietnamese from all parts of the country to contribute to the continued development of Viet Nam, he said, stating that the Australian Government is always ready to support Viet Nam in this process.

Deputy Minister of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs Nguyen Van Hoi highlighted Viet Nam's progress in boosting gender equality in all fields, noting that women are taking 30.26 percent of the total seats at National Assembly, ranking 60th out of the 193 countries in this regard.

Data from the World Economic Forum's report in July 2022 showing that Viet Nam ranks 83th out of the 146 countries in gender equality index, up 4 steps over 2021, with improvement in the indicators of women empowerment, health care and education, added Nguyen./.
