In recent years, the State of Vietnam has constantly improved internal forces, perfecting the legal system, institutions and policies on human rights, in which the most prominent is the National Assembly's adoption of the Labor Code (amended). ith many new regulations to better ensure the rights of workers, while joining the Convention 98 of the International Labor Organization on the right to collective bargaining.

The results of ensuring human rights in reality of the State of Vietnam are also proved through convincing numbers. According to the UNDP 2018 Report, Vietnam belonged to the group of countries with high average Human Development Index (116 out of 185 countries) and the Gender Equality Index (67 out of 160 countries). A World Bank report also shows that the poverty rate in Vietnam continues to decline, especially among ethnic minorities, with a sharp decline rate of 13%, the largest decline in the past decade.

Vietnam is also determined to work towards a constructive government, serving the people through the quality of public services that is gradually improving. The atmosphere of innovation and creativity is spreading among the people in all regions. Internet and information technology have reached both remote and isolated areas.

That positive movement has made Vietnam’s hallmarks as well as promoted the effectiveness of bilateral human rights dialogue mechanisms between Vietnam and its partners in recent times. The latest evidence is that Vietnam recently conducted Human Rights Dialogues with the European Union, the US and Australia. Particularly, at the Dialogue with Australia, the two countries issued a joint press release for the first time.
