Vietnam shares experience in poverty reduction at UNGA 73

A member of the Vietnamese mission to the United Nations delivered a speech on Eradication of poverty and other development issues before the UN Economic and Financial Committee (Second Committee) in New York on Wednesday.

The representative presented Vietnam's achievements in poverty reduction and the challenges it faces in restructuring the economy, finding proper sustainable growth models, maintaining what has been achieved, mitigating the impacts of climate change, and addressing social inequality, especially for vulnerable people like ethnic minority groups. Vietnam urged the UN to continue helping it achieve its poverty eradication goal by providing resources, policy consultancy, and access to international financing.

Countries exchanged their experience in ending poverty and outlined challenges still facing the world, particularly in terms of resource shortages. They agreed that eradicating poverty is fundamental to the fulfillment of the other Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
