From an underdeveloped poor country, people were lack of food; Vietnam has risen and achieved GDP growth above 6% over the last 20 years; and is the world's leading food exporter. Since 2010, Vietnam has become a middle-income developing country; the lives of nearly 100 million people have been enhanced.

Vietnam has made great efforts and gained many achievements in completing the law system related to human rights. Vietnam has well implemented international recommendations related to human rights that Vietnam approved through the United Nations mechanisms such as the Universal Periodic Review (UPR); the Periodic Reporting of conventions, in which Vietnam is a member; and develop national action programs on the implementation of the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. In addition, Vietnam has also made efforts to carry out development programs, especially in supporting people in disaster-hit regions.

"Despite many challenges, Vietnam will make efforts to help people better enjoy human rights and the achievements of the national development," Mr. Huynh said.
