Ha Noi, Viet Nam, 18-19 December 2017 - The UNIDO Institute for Capacity Development, in collaboration with the Industry Agency at the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MOIT) of Viet Nam, organized a two-day executive programme on evidence-based industrial policymaking titled “Enhancing the Quality of Industrial Policy”.

The programme, gathering over 20 high-level policymakers from different Ministries and Departments engaged in implementing Viet Nam’s industrial policy, conveyed some of the basic principles and outlined the benefits of evidence-based industrial policymaking. The underlying methodology, developed by UNIDO in cooperation with the German Federal Enterprise for International Cooperation (GiZ), called EQuIP (Enhancing the Quality of Industrial Policy) provides a comprehensive toolkit including both quantitative as well as qualitative instruments to develop dynamic industrial policies and to support their effective implementation.

The event is part of a project "Support to the Government of Viet Nam in the formulation of Sub-Sector Industrial Strategy and of the related Implementation Policy through Institutional Capacity Building" funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Korea. The project aims at enhancing the quality of Viet Nam’s industrial development strategy and policy through building institutional capacity, compiling industrial reports for the public and the private sector, and proposing concrete strategies and policies to enhance Viet Nam’s industrial competitiveness. It will be followed by a working-level training in January 2018.

At the opening, Mr. Tran Quang Ha, Deputy Director General of the Industry Agency, MOIT, thanked UNIDO for its timely intervention during a time where Viet Nam is about to increase its share of manufacturing in its overall economic output. Ms. Killmeyer-Oleche, Chief of the Institute for Capacity Development, UNIDO looked ahead at future cooperation with Vietnamese stakeholders in capacity development to support the country on its industrialization path.

Harsh punishment for child offenders doesn’t prevent further criminality

The age at which a child, can be held criminally liable is a controversial issue around the world. Within Viet Nam, this issue is currently being grappled with in the Penal Code amendments. Some argue that a "get tough on crime" approach is necessary to punish children to prevent further criminality.

However, international research shows that because of their developmental stages, labelling and treating children as criminals at an early age can have serious negative impacts on their development and successful rehabilitation.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s message for World AIDS Day, observed on 1 December

 

Thirty-five years since the emergence of AIDS, the international community can look back with some pride.  But we must also look ahead with resolve and commitment to reach our goal of ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030.

There has been real progress in tackling the disease. More people than ever are on treatment.  Since 2010, the number of children infected through mother to child transmission has dropped by half. Fewer people die of AIDS related causes each year.  And people living with HIV are living longer lives.

The number of people with access to life-saving medicines has doubled over the past five years, now topping 18 million. With the right investments, the world can get on the fast-track to achieve our target of 30 million people on treatment by 2030.  Access to HIV medicines to prevent mother to child transmission is now available to more than 75 per cent of those in need.
