On Octorber 8th, 2015, on the sideline of an international seminar "Legal Policy to ensure the freedom of belief and religion - experience sharing between Europe and Vietnam" by the Government Committee for Religion Affairs in coordination with the EU Deligation in Vietnam, Mr. Juan Zaratiegui, Political Advisor of the European Union Delegation in Vietnam said that in the framework of the 2013 Constitution, freedom of belief and religion in Vietnam has much improved.
He expressed confidence about draft law of belief and religion with the institutionalization of the views of the 2013 Constitution under the Government Committee for Religion extensive consultation will open up new opportunities as well as the facilitate the freedom of religion and belief in Vietnam.
According to Mr. Bui Thanh Ha, Deputy Head of the Government Committee for Religious Affairs, the construction of the legal framework represented by Law of belief and religion is one of the essential things for the legal provisions to ensure the religious activities to be done in a better way. Mr. Ha said, the legislation in the current building process toward two goals. They are promoting the role of religion in social life and overcoming the inappropriate regulations or unclear points. The new legislation will overcome the present limitations.
Individuals, religious organizations are interested in Draft law and contribute many specific ideas. Together with these inner religious organizations and individuals, international organizations concerned about the construction of this law and also contributed many ideas. This shows that, developing the Law of belief and religion in order to better ensure the rights of the people is essential. If the law is passed, it will be a good legal basis for organizations and individuals to carry out religious activities and will guarantee better the freedom of belief and religion of the people.
Bui Thanh Ha said that in the future, to further promote freedom of belief and religion, along with the promulgation and build a specialized law on beliefs and religions, we must organize propaganda for people to understand the spirit of the law, and then to implementation – one of important things. The people not only understand but also carry out themselves so the role of government in guiding and facilitating religious institutions comply with the provisions of the law must be made clear...
Regarding strange religions in recent times, Mr. Bui Thanh Ha said, as well as many countries in the world, there are also new religious phenomena in Vietnam. In the new religious phenomenon, there are incompatible phenomena with religious and cultural traditions in Vietnam, especially the religious phenomenon that some countries called counter-culture religious.
Regarding the risk of religious phenomena appear incorrectly with the cultural tradition, Mr. Ha said that this phenomenon brings negative impacts morally. The counter-cultural religion being handled in accordance with the law of Vietnam has reacted incorrectly and that reaction was abused by evil forces for propaganda that Vietnam  prevented religious freedom. In particular, some evil forces have taken advantage of the counter-culture phenomena to provoke. They  not only put pressure on local authorities but also request irrational opinions against guidelines and policies of the Party and State of Vietnam.

For the religious phenomenon is not exactly the norm and tradition, Deputy Head of the Government Committee for Religion said that religion should have very specific look to resolve under the law in order to ensure stability and safety, avoiding the situation that phenomenon has affected the traditional capital of the religion, security as well as order, life, health and property of citizens.
