Foreign and domestic experts shared the view at a March 18 seminar in Thai Nguyen that Vietnam has made impressive achievements in poverty reduction, but the result is unsteady.

Statistics show the country's poverty rate fell dramatically from nearly 60% in 1990 to 20.7% in 2010, with more than 30 million people escaping poverty.

Vietnam has also achieved impressive results in education and health care. The enrollment rate in primary education of the poor is more than 90% while that of junior secondary education is 70%. Increased education, diverse non-farming practices, and increased job opportunities at factories have also contributed to poverty reduction.

Vietnam is considered a shining example of poverty reduction by many international organisations.

Poverty reduction in Vietnam: rapid, yet unsteady

Participants pointed out limits in implementing poverty reduction programmes in Vietnam, such as overlapped policies leading to ineffective allocation and the lack of resources. Many localities rely on the State subsidy, and some policies are not in line with reality, alongside poor communications.

A Government draft report on the implementation of poverty reduction policies in the 2005-2012 period will be debated by National Assembly Committee for Social Affairs to collate additional opinions for submission to the upcoming legislature session.
