In 2022, thoroughly grasping the foreign policy guidelines of the 13th National Party Congress and the content of the Secretariat’s Directive 12-CT/TW, dated January 5, 2022, on strengthening the Party's leadership, improving the effectiveness of people-to-people diplomacy in the new situation, the Fatherland Front, mass organizations and people’s organizations continued to synchronously deploy people-to-people diplomacy activities, contributing to the overall results in the country’s foreign affairs.
People-to-people diplomacy has contributed to strengthening solidarity, friendship and cooperation with the peoples of other countries, expanding the network of friends and international partners, creating a foundation for favorable social relations between our country and the world.
It helps Vietnam to participate responsibly in multilateral activities and mechanisms, make appropriate contributions to the progressive people's movement; integrate into the world, mobilize external resources to serve development.
Vietnam actively mobilizes and protects the interests of the nation; effectively carry out the work of the country’s foreign affairs, connecting overseas Vietnamese.
The coordination between the three pillars - Party diplomacy, State diplomacy, people-to-people diplomacy is strengthened. The leadership and management of the competent levels for foreign affairs activities is ensured, in compliance with the principles of Party leadership and State management.
On behalf of the Secretariat of the Party Central Committee, Bui Thi Minh Hoai, secretary of the Party Central Committee, and head of its Commission for Mass Mobilization appreciated the force working in people-to-people diplomacy for the achievements made in the past year.
She said that people-to-people diplomacy is one of the three pillars, together with Party diplomacy and State diplomacy creating the synergy of Vietnam's foreign policy.
The pillar of people-to-people diplomacy, with the active participation of people's organizations and people, has specific characteristics suitable to the Vietnamese political system.
It represents the solidarity of the Vietnamese people led by the Communist Party of Vietnam on the foreign front.
With the viewpoint "people are the root, people are subjects, people are resources," it can be understood that people-to-people diplomacy is international mass mobilization work.
