Taking place from November 21-27, 2022, the Assembly will welcome 200 participants, including about 100 international delegates from 49 countries belonging to nearly 60 member organizations of the WPC and 100 Vietnamese delegates.

The assembly contributes to enhancing the role and position of Vietnam, particularly VUFO and VPC the world peace movement, demonstrating that Vietnam is an active and responsible member of the international community.

The assembly looks to strengthen the friendship and cooperation between VUFO, VPC, and other WPC’s councils and members. It also promotes communication activity about Vietnam and the Vietnamese peace movement, enlisting the support of the WPC and its members on issues that are in line with Vietnam’s interests such as the South China Sea and Agent Orange/dioxin.
