HÀ NỘI — A national conference was held on Wednesday to deploy the Prime Minister’s decree on the implementation of a project to include human rights in the national education system.

The event was held in both virtual and in-person formats under the chair of Nguyễn Xuân Thắng, Politburo member, President of the Hồ Chí Minh National Academy of Politics (HCMA), and Chairman of the Central Theory Council.

Addressing the event, Thắng stressed the importance of the implementation of the decree after the Party Central Committee’s sixth session approved a resolution on continuing to build and perfect a law-governed socialist state of Việt Nam, in which the principle of respecting, ensuring and protecting human rights has been highlighted as a key aspect.

In addition, Việt Nam was honoured and proud to be elected to the United Nations Human Rights Council for the 2023-2025 tenure, he noted.

Emphasising that under the project, 100 per cent of institutions in the national education system are expected to teach human rights by the end of 2025, the official said there was not much time left and the workload remained large.

He urged agencies, localities, educational associations, sectors and the political system to make concerted efforts to implement the decree and build programmes and plans to fulfil their tasks. — VNS
