Deputy Foreign Minister Nguyen Quoc Dung spoke highly of contributions of female diplomats and spouses to foreign affair activities, especially against the backdrop of COVID-19.

This year International Women’s Day's theme is “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world on the way to the Generation Equality Forum”.

He noted that promoting gender equality and women empowerment are among consistent priorities of Vietnam, for inclusive and sustainable development, as well as an important pillar of the country’s diplomacy.

Vietnam highlighted the theme of this year's International Women's Day chosen by UN Women, thereby, celebrating the great efforts of women around the world to create a more equal and restorative future.

In 2020, Vietnam voiced its support for gender equality and women empowerment in all multilateral forums, the diplomat added.

For the first time in the frameworks of the United Nations and ASEAN, Vietnam initiated and successfully held the ASEAN Leaders' Special Session on Women's Empowerment in the Digital Age, and an international conference on women’s role in building and sustaining peace.

For her part, Sara Valdés Bolano, Mexican Ambassador to Vietnam, who is co-president of the Ambassadors Group for gender equality, congratulated Vietnam on its achievements in the field, re-affirming a commitment to helping the country continue efforts towards gender equality.
