For a common prosperity


For a common prosperity 
More than a billion people, some 20% of the world’s population, live in extreme poverty, including tens of millions of children left without access to decent education.
Vietnam has made strong progress toward its poverty reduction targets, one of the key indicators set out by the United Nations in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
According to FAO, Vietnam has reached its target of a 50% reduction in people suffering from hunger; also halving the number of undernourished people between the 1990-1992 and 2010-2012 periods, successfully fulfilling the MDG 1.
The country wins plaudits for its outstanding achievements in reducing hunger and poverty. Recently, the UN agency held a ceremony to honour Vietnam, along with 37 other countries, for meeting anti-hunger targets.
The UN has also called for increased funding from the international community to help poor countries to rise out of poverty and attain sustainable development.
Over the past year, the World Bank (WB) has responded to the call, providing a record level of financial resources to the world’s poorest countries, despite the current global economic downturn.
In all, it has granted aid worth US$16.3 billion to the world’s poorest countries, an increase of 11% over the previous fiscal year. The WB Group has provided a total US$52.6 billion in funding for nearly 2,000 development programmes across the globe.
With its mission to promote shared prosperity, the WB is strengthening efforts to eradicate extreme poverty worldwide by 2030, largely by promoting income generation activities for the poorest 40% of the population in developing countries.

The year 2015 marks the 20th anniversary of Vietnam’s accession to ASEAN. Vietnam has not only demonstrated its responsibility and fulfilled its duties, it has also made significant contributions to the development of the Association.

Through creation of its Doi Moi policies, Vietnam effectively opened up its markets and transformed a stagnant peasant economy into a vibrant market-driven system.

Vietnam has one of south-east Asia's fastest-growing economies and has set its sights on becoming a developed nation by 2020.

Vietnam joined the World Trade Organization in January 2007. The production costs are among the lowest in Asia, and very competitive! Vietnam also has one of the world’s youngest populations where 70% is below 35 years of age. The Vietnamese people are open minded, hard working, well educated and has a lot to offer to the overseas markets – both now and in the future...

Together we are going to discover the beauty of our homeland. Let us go back together in time, into history... For thousands of years, ever since the birth of our nation, the Vietnamese people have been exposed to various harsh experiences. Many, many times our dreams of independence were taken away.

During a thousand years of Chinese Rule we lived under oppression, injustice, severe control of the armed forces, and the cultural influence of Great China which wanted to annex our country into its territory. Through a series of heroic struggles, our ancestors survived the threat of extermination and proved to the Chinese that their dream of assimilation would only result in failure.

In fact the Vietnam War had a noble mission of its own. The twenty years of the Vietnam War effectively stopped the expansion of the Red Empire - the Communist Empire. The war has given the whole world an opportunity to recognize the inhumanity of many communist regimes.

Vietnam is a precious stone which can never be shattered.

Phạm Hiếu 14/4/15 13:00

Having rediscovered the beauty and the value of our homeland, let us henceforth consider Vietnam as the "Land of Hope and Prosperity".
