The OECD Development Centre launched the Youth Well-being Policy Review of the Viet Nam study



Ms Naoko Ueda, Deputy Director of the OECD Development Centre, presented the Youth Well-being Policy Review of Viet Nam in a high-level event organised in Hanoi, Viet Nam on 22 November, in collaboration with the Ministry of Home Affairs (MOHA) and Germany’s Hanns Seidel Foundation. The activity was attended Mr Vu Dang Minh, Director of the Youth Affairs Department under the MOHA; Dr Axel Neubert, Director of Hans Seidel Foundation (HSS); Mr Tom Corrie, Deputy Head of Cooperation of the Delegation of the European Union to Viet Nam and Ms Astrid Bant, Representative of UNFPA-Viet Nam. 

Ms Ueda highlighted the urgent need to invest more in human capital development, working towards striving to expand training opportunities for all young people and narrow the gap between the skills of young people and the needs of the labour market. Capacity building, institutional understanding and innovative participatory platforms would help enhance the civic participation of young Vietnamese, she added.

The Youth Well-being Policy Review of Viet Nam study is part of the OECD Development Centre’s Youth Inclusion Project, co-financed by the European Union. It provides a full diagnosis on the situation of young Vietnamese. The analysis uses a multidimensional approach to look at various dimensions of well-being affecting young people and gives recommendations for the formulation of public policies in favour of youth and for government action.

Two panel discussions were held during the event. The first focussed on the main findings from the Review and the second panel presented progress made in implementing the Vietnamese Youth Development Strategy (VYDS) 2011-2020 and the remaining challenges.
