The video, was produced by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in collaboration with the Ambassadors of Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the U.S.

The World Day Against Trafficking in Person (WDATIP) this year focuses on the theme: "Reach every victim of trafficking, leave no one behind."

According to the 2023 Trafficking in Persons Report by the U.S. Department of State, the Viet Nam Government investigated 247 suspected traffickers in 90 cases in 2022, compared with 149 suspected traffickers in 77 cases in 20213. Of the 90 cases investigated, 49 cases involved transnational trafficking to China and Cambodia.

The Government of Viet Nam has emphasized that human trafficking crimes have become complicated and increasingly severe, with criminals' tactics becoming more complex and harder to tackle, including using encrypted messaging apps and large-scale operations managed by transnational criminal groups.

In the last few years, Viet Nam has been making significant efforts to create a transparent migration environment, protect the legal rights and interests of migrants, and take action against human trafficking.

In the implementation of the third National Human Trafficking Prevention and Control Program for 2021-2025, with a vision for 2030, the Government includes new solutions and tasks to prevent and fight human trafficking in all areas.

The Government has improved its capacity for investigations, prosecuting, and convicting more traffickers, increased international law enforcement cooperation, and initiated criminal proceedings against allegedly complicit officials.

The Vietnamese Government has also made significant efforts to streamline inter-agency coordination and referrals through standardized procedures and strengthened institutional capacities.

Significantly, the Government increased efforts to protect victims were recognized by international partners, and it shows in the nation's upgraded to Tier 2 Watch List in the 2023 Trafficking in Persons Report./.
