Speaking at the seminar, Minister of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs Dao Ngoc Dung said, after 10 years of implementation, the Resolution of the 5th plenum of the 11th Party Central Committee on some issues on social policy in the 2012-2020 period, has achieved many important achievements. The perception of party committees, authorities and people about social policies has changed markedly.
The system of social policies has ensured fairness, comprehensiveness, and inclusiveness, and is close to international standards, ensuring people's right to security, contributing to economic development and political stability, and social order, improving the people's material and spiritual life, he said.
Most of the targets have met or exceeded the Resolution’s target, with many bright spots in the fields of caring for people with meritorious services, poverty reduction and social security, he noted.
The system of social policies in 2030 is aimed at all people and ensures comprehensiveness, and inclusiveness; meeting the needs of social security and social services for the people, creating development opportunities for all people and leaving no one behind; creating a foundation for building a progressive, fair, equal, compassionate, united and mutually supportive society; meeting the goal of developing countries with modern industry and high middle income.
At the seminar, representatives of United Nations agencies and international experts shared experiences and recommendations and determined that Vietnam should focus on issues to improve social policies.
These opinions will be summarised and reported to the Central Steering Committee, on the 10-year summary of the implementation of the Resolution of the 5th plenum of the 11th Party Central Committee and provide information on completing the new document on social policy for the 2023- 2030 period, with a vision 2045.
