Vice President hails women’s role in 4th Industrial Revolution

Vietnamese Vice President Dang Thi Ngoc Thinh has called on nations, organizations, and enterprises to join hands in building a legal framework to ensure equality of opportunities for women and help them adapt to the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Addressing the 2019 Global Summit of Women in Basel, Switzerland, on Thursday evening, Ms. Thinh said that the development of science and technology may pose a risk of increasing the gender gap if women are not equipped with new knowledge, skills and work methods. She advised women to work hard to promote their potential and actively improve themselves to better meet the requirements of high-quality jobs in the digital era.

She emphasized Vietnam's efforts to create favorable conditions for women to do business and encourage them to get involved in science, technology, and hi-tech agriculture.

The Global Summit of Women has been held annually since 1990. It aims to expand women's economic opportunities globally through exchanges of solutions and creative strategies created by women leaders in different parts of the world.
