On 15 November 2016, the OECD Development Centre and the Ministry of Home Affairs organized a workshop to review the first findings of the Youth Inclusion project. The OECD presented the situation analysis of the youth in Viet Nam (major challenges in education, health, employment and participation) as well as the determinants of selected negative outcomes (dropouts and poor job outcomes).
As part of the capacity building objective of the project, the OECD together with the Ministry of Home Affairs (MOHA) organised a training on Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) for 50 local government officials from six provinces working at province, district and commune levels.
The article contains general information on youth-related issues in Viet Nam. The Constitution of the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam recognizes and protects young people’s rights to protection, care and education, also recognizing the obligations of the State, society and family to create favourable conditions for the studies, work and recreation of young people.
According to the 2009 Census, there were 16.6 million people aged 15-24 in Viet Nam, accounting for 19.4% of the total population. This page will present an overview of resent work on youth in the country.
