HÀ NỘI — Vice Chairman of the National Committee on Youth of Việt Nam (NCYV), Nguyễn Anh Tuấn, urged ministries and governmental agencies to integrate youth affairs into policymaking during the committee’s 32nd meeting in Hà Nội on Tuesday.

The NCYV closely co-ordinated the drafting of the revised Youth Law, which received approval from the National Assembly last year. It also completed the implementation of the 2011-2020 strategy for Vietnamese youth development and has developed a strategy for the next 10 years.

Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Nguyễn Minh Vũ said youth affairs have played an important part in the activities of governmental organisations. Most ministries and governmental agencies have launched programmes for youths, including a cultural ambassador programme as well as conferences and seminars on start-ups and innovation.

As Chair of ASEAN 2020, Việt Nam advocated the inclusion of youth-related content in the Chairman’s Statement of the 37th ASEAN Summit, he said.

Tuấn said the committee will continue working with relevant bodies to develop youth-related policies and will supervise the enforcement of the revised Youth Law and the 2020-30 strategy for youth development.

He also called for an increase in information exchange between the committee and other organisations regarding youth affairs. — VNS
