According to the General Statistics Office, Vietnam’s population stood at 99.2 million as of April 1, 2022.

Vietnam plans to receive its 100 millionth citizen in mid-April and will officially become one of 15 countries in the world and one of three countries in Southeast Asia, to have a population of 100 million or over.

To celebrate this special event, in mid-April the General Statistics Office in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Public Security, and other relevant agencies will organise three major programmes, namely a welcoming ceremony for the 100 millionth baby, a walking parade, and a music show./.
