Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnam Association for Protection of Children’s Rights held a seminar in Hanoi on December 23 to collect recommendations for the enforcement of the Article 92 of the Children’s Law and the association’s working strategy for 2017-2020.

Nguyen Thi Lan, member of the association’s standing board, said Article 92 for the first time stipulates responsibilities of social organisations in the building of laws and policies on children and the association’s role in partnering with other social organisations to collect feedback and offer advices to relevant agencies.

Participants suggested the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs hold meeting with social organisations every six months to collect information and listen to their recommendations involving the enforcement of the rights of children.

Ministries and agencies from the central to local level should allow social organisations to monitor the enforcement of children’s rights as well as provide public services in this regard.

On the working strategy, the association will improve its standing in supervising and recommending policies related to children, and become more vocal in promoting children’s rights./.
