She also met with Deputy Minister of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs Nguyen Thanh Hoa and discussed cooperation between the two countries in childcare and protection.

Sweden is willing to support Viet Nam in ratifying the Hague Convention which focuses on international adoption, she said.

She appreciated the fact that Viet Nam is only the second country in the world and first in Asia to approve the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Ms. Johansson visits the Ha Noi Medical University today and will tomorrow arrive in Ho Chi Minh City where she will call on the Department of Health and some medical and social welfare organizations.
