Welcome to the Vietnam portal / Chào mừng bạn đến với Chủ đề Việt Nam

Vietnam (sometimes written as Viet Nam, Vietnamese: Việt Nam, [vîət nāːm] (About this soundlisten)), officially the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (Vietnamese: Cộng hòa Xã hội chủ nghĩa Việt Nam), is a country in Southeast Asia. Located at the eastern edge of the Indochinese Peninsula, Vietnam is divided into 58 provinces and five municipalities, covering 331,699 square kilometres, with a population of over 96 million inhabitants as of 2019, making it the 16th most populous country in the world. Vietnam shares its land borders with China to the north, and Laos and Cambodia to the west. It shares its maritime borders with Thailand through the Gulf of Thailand, and the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia through the South China Sea. Its capital city is Hanoi, and its most populous city is Ho Chi Minh City.

Archaeological excavations indicate that Vietnam was inhabited as early as the Paleolithic age. The ancient Vietnamese nation, which was centered on the Red River valley and nearby coastal areas, was annexed by the Han dynasty in the 2nd century BC, which subsequently made Vietnam a division of Imperial China for over a millennium. The first independent monarchy emerged in the 10th century AD. This paved the way for successive imperial dynasties as the nation expanded southward until the Indochina Peninsula was colonised by the French in the late 19th century. Modern Vietnam was born upon the Proclamation of Independence from France in 1945. Following Vietnamese victory against the French in the First Indochina War, which ended in 1954, the nation was divided into two rival states: communist North and anti-communist South. Conflicts intensified in the Vietnam War, which saw extensive US intervention in support of South Vietnam and Soviet and Chinese support for the North, and ended with North Vietnamese victory in 1975.

After North and South Vietnam were reunified as a communist state under a unitary socialist government in 1976, the country became economically and politically isolated until 1986, when the Communist Party initiated a series of economic and political reforms that facilitated Vietnamese integration into world politics and the global economy. As a result of the successful reforms, Vietnam has enjoyed a high GDP growth rate, consistently ranked among the fastest-growing countries in the world. It is a regional power in Southeast Asia and is considered a middle power in global affairs. It is a developing country with an lower-middle-income economy, and high Human Development Index. It nevertheless faces challenges including corruption, pollution, poverty, inadequate social welfare and a poor human rights record, including increasing persecution of religious groups and human rights advocates and intensifying restrictions on civil liberties. By 2010, Vietnam had established diplomatic relations with 178 countries. It is part of several major international and intergovernmental institutions or groupings including the United Nations (UN), the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum, Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), International Organisation of the Francophonie (La Francophonie), Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) and the World Trade Organization (WTO). The country has also assumed a seat on the United Nations Security Council twice.

Despite their historical past, today Vietnam is considered to be a potential ally of the United States, especially in the geopolitical context of the territorial disputes in the South China Sea and in containment of Chinese expansionism. Also, Vietnam is globally one of the countries with the most favourable public opinion regarding the US. (Full article...)

The Vietnam Women's Union, otherwise referred to as the VWU, is a socio-political organization that represents and defends the legal and legitimate rights and interests of Women in Vietnam. The Vietnam Women's Union was originally founded on October 20, 1930 and went through various name changes until the 1950s and the first National Women's Congress. Currently, membership is over 13 million members belonging to 10,472 local women's unions in communes and towns throughout the country The current president, re-elected for the 2017-2022 term, is President Nguyen Thi Thu Ha and Vice Presidents Bui Thi Hoa, Tran Thi Huong, Hoang Thi Ai Nhien, and Nguyen Thi Tuyet.

From 1931-1945 the title was the “Liberation Women’s Union” with a primary focus on rallying support for the Communist Party of Vietnam and the North Vietnam regime in the populace and combat the French colonialists in the Southern region. From 1936-1938 the name changed to the “Anti-Imperialism Women’s Union” to show their support of the Communist regime and to bring women together in opposition to the American involvement in the Vietnam War.

The name again changed in 1939 until 1940 to the “Democratic Women’s Union” as well as the “Women’s League for National Salvation” during the remainder of the war until the final name change to the Vietnam Women's Union in 1950 at the first National Women's Congress. At this point, the VWU officially encouraged members to actively participate in nation building processes and support of the government through anti-French and Imperialist resistance in all aspects of their lives.
