Among the remaining targets, three have been partly completed while two others getting closer to the targets set for 2030, said the minister.

Gender equality in the fields of politics, economy, labor, employment, education and training, social security, information and communications continued to be bright spots with many advances compared to the previous years.

Chairwoman of the NA Committee for Social Affairs Nguyen Thuy Anh said that Viet Nam's gender equality ranking in 2023 jumped 15 steps to the 72nd position out of 146 countries from the 87th position in 2021.

The ratio of female deputies to the 15th National Assembly reached 30.26 percent, exceeding the 30 percent mark for the first time since the 6th National Assembly, increasing from the 71st to the 55th position in the world and the 4th place in Asia.

The income of female workers has improved. Women account for 55 percent of the workers participating in compulsory social insurance, and make up 51 percent of the total number of people receiving pensions and social insurance benefits, the official said, adding that women's roles and positions in families and society have also improved.

On April 9, Viet Nam was elected to the Executive Board of the UN Women for the 2025 - 2027 tenure.

However, Viet Nam is one of the fastest aging countries in the world while the health care system has yet to meet the increasing demand of the elderly of whom 57 percent are women./.
