NDO – The Government has recently adopted the National Strategy on Gender Equality for the 2021- 2030 period.

Accordingly, Vietnam expects to see women holding key leadership positions in 60% of all state management agencies and local administrations at all levels by 2025, this figure rising to 75% by 2030.

The number of paid women employees in Vietnam will increase to 50% by 2025 and will be around 60% by 2030, while the percentage of women working in the agricultural sector amongst all employed women will decline to below 30% by 2025 and will be less than 25% by 2030.

The rate of female directors or owners of businesses is expected to reach at least 27% by 2025 and 30% by 2030.

The country also aims to reduce the average time women spend doing unpaid housework 1.7 times by 2025 and 1.4 times by 2030 as compared to that of men.
