1. Tuoi tre:On 15 June, the U.S. Department of State released its annual Trafficking in Persons Report. What is Viet Nam’s comment on the report detailing the human trafficking situation in Viet Nam?

The policy of the Government of Viet Nam is to promote legal, safe and orderly migration, while resolutely fighting against illegal migration, human smuggling and human trafficking.

Recently, Viet Nam continued its strict implementation of the Program on Human Trafficking Prevention and Combat for 2021-2025, with directions toward 2030, and achieved a number of important results such as: effectively increased interdisciplinary cooperation, improve statistical work, enhance investigation and handling of human trafficking crimes, and increase awareness on human trafficking. Viet Nam is making every effort to realize the goals of the Global Compact for Migration (GCM) according to the Plan issued by the Prime Minister on 20 March 2020, to reinforce a transparent migration environment, safeguard the lawful rights and interests of migrants, and prevent the risks of human trafficking in international migration activities.

Viet Nam recognizes that the United States’ assessment in its 2023 Report has been more positive. In this spirit, we wish to further cooperate with the U.S. in the time to come, to provide an objective, accurate, and more comprehensive assessment on the situation in Viet Nam, and of Viet Nam’s substantive efforts. We stand ready to discuss with the U.S. as well as relevant parties on specific cooperation issues to further effectively implement human trafficking prevention and combat.

2. AFP:Can the Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirm, or provide further information on the report that this weekend, the USS Ronald Reagan will visit Viet Nam? Can you comment on the implication this has on a potential conflict in the South China Sea?

According to the information we’ve been given, the USS Ronald Reagan will pay a port visit to Da Nang from 25 to 30 June 2023.

Viet Nam receiving visits from other countries’ naval vessels, including the U.S. this time is an ordinary activity to foster friendship, for peace, stability, cooperation and development in the region and the world.

3. Phoenix TV: We’ve received information that Japan’s largest destroyer is currently visiting Cam Ranh, Khanh Hoa. Can you comment on this visit?

4.Central News Agency: Recently, the lives of the people and industrial manufacture in Northern Viet Nam have been affected by power shortages. A number of businesses from Chinese Taipei have said that the unexpected and at times unannounced power cuts have caused them difficulties in managing their work schedules. In addition to increasing power generation capacity, does Viet Nam plan to expand cooperation with other countries in generating and supplying power, or to negotiate the import of power?

 We understand the businesses’ concerns, including foreign businesses on the power shortages currently plaguing Northern Viet Nam.

Vietnamese competent authorities are making every effort, with encouraging results, to mitigate this situation at the earliest and ensure the demands of the people as well as the businesses’ operations.
