The awardees are those who have made outstanding performance in such fields as economy, education, culture, healthcare, and community development.
Initiated in 2002, the Viet Nam Women’s Awards is one of the major prizes designed to encourage women to carry forward their talents and knowledge in the cause of national industrialization and modernization.
A total of 93 groups and 164 individuals have won the awards over the past 19 years thanks to their outstanding performance in education, arts, sports, business, agricultural production, management, research, healthcare, humanitarian and charitable activities, and national defense and security.
The same day, the VWU also announced 24 winners of the 2021 Women Entrepreneur Awards which was first introduced in February 2021.
Addressing the award handover ceremony, Permanent Deputy Prime Minister Pham Binh Minh extended best wishes to all women across the nation on the occasion of the Vietnamese Women’s Day (October 20).
Pham congratulated the award winners this year, hailing them as women with strong thirst for sowing good deeds for brighter future for themselves and for others.
He said it is encouraging to learn that 45 percent of the initiatives competing for the Women Entrepreneur Awards come from ethnic women living in disadvantaged areas.
Pham took the occasion to urge ministries, agencies and localities to better implement policies designed to promote the development of women and female entrepreneurship.
