The discussions resulted in 22 messages and recommendations that the children presented to law makers and mass organisations.
Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam asked ministries, agencies and organisations to take specific actions to address recommendations raised by children at the forum.
Themed “Children with children’s issues”, the sixth national children’s forum was meant to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989-2019).
The event, which gathers 169 children from 41 provinces and cities nationwide, was held in Hanoi from August 14-17 by the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, National Assembly Committee for Culture, Education, Youth, Adolescents and Children, and the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union.
The forum is held biennially, with the first taking place in 2009.
