HÀ NỘI — Việt Nam’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Organisation for Migration (IOM) released Việt Nam Migration Profile 2016 in Hà Nội on Tuesday.
The profile is the result of “Enhancing cooperation among Việt Nam’s relevant agencies in migration management,” carried out by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Consular Department and the IOM in the period between 2015 and 2017.
The profile includes updated statistics on Vietnamese migration flow, analysis and assessment on migration facts and proposes recommendations according to the current situation to improve migration management capacity of sectors and ministries, accomplish laws to better manage international migration and boost co-operation among State agencies in this work.
Head of the Consular Department and Assistant to Foreign Affairs Minister Nguyễn Minh Vũ said international migration is paid due attention to by governments in the region, in the world and the whole international community because this issue has an increasingly major impact on economic growth and the society of each nation, in addition to direct influences on migrants and their families.
Boosting legal migration, preventing illegal migration, ensuring safe migration and protecting legitimate rights and benefits of migrants are consistent policies of Việt Nam.
IOM Việt Nam Chief of Mission David Knight said, at present, migration is not only the problem of one country, but is also a global issue. When a country does not control the number of migrants, it is very difficult to determine management strategies, he said.
Việt Nam Migration Profile 2016 is scheduled to be published in HCM City on August 29 to disseminate information to authorised agencies, public and foreign representative agencies in the south. — VNS
