Accordingly, the two sides will support each other in implementing their common goals, exchanging information and experience in activities of Vietnamese women in Vietnam and European countries, giving consultations to womens’ organizations in building development strategies and implementing projects related to the development of women.

They will share experience and cooperate in activities to maintain traditional Vietnamese values and integrate into the host country’s society.

According to the agreement, the two sides will coordinate to hold or join conferences, seminars and forums to seek measures in enhancing women’s role in socio-economic fields, as well as training courses to provide women with management and leadership skills, thus increasing their opportunities to develop themselves, improving their role in society, and updating science-technology advances.

VWFE President Phan Bich Thien expressed her hope that the partnership with the HNEW will bring specific benefits for both sides and create more new cooperation opportunities.

She said that the VWFE was set up in June 2023, gathering nearly 300 members from 21 countries, aiming to connect Vietnamese women in regional countries, as well as connecting them with Vietnamese women at home.

For her part, HNEW President Bui Thi Hai Yen expressed her hope that the two sides will organize various meetings, exchanges and trade connections for members of the two sides through conferences and forums. Particularly, it needs to create an information channel between the two sides to share and seek trade opportunities so that HNEW members can access the European market.

The association, established in 2008, has nearly 250 members who are leaders of private businesses in all sectors./.
