Thank you, witnesses, for your time and your presentations.
Vietnam's government continues to violate a broad range of human rights. There are approximately 220,000 people of Vietnamese heritage in Canada. The Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development reports that Canada and Vietnam maintain good bilateral relations. But these continuing testimonies of Vietnam violating the human rights of its citizens are very startling.
In your opinion, how much of the problem in Vietnam can be attributed to corruption?

Allegations have been raised that Vietnam restricts and tortures peaceful protesters, as you showed to us in the pictures. Are there particular kinds of protesters that the government targets and is there a reason why the government would target particular protesters?

Thank you, Chair.
Thank you, Mr. Neve, Mr. Olivares, and Mr. Quevado for your testimony today to our subcommittee.
In February 2014 the renewal of the Canada-Mexico joint action plan was signed between Canada and Mexico. The action plan extends for almost up to three years and covers four priority areas of engagement: fostering competitive and sustainable economies, protecting citizens, enhancing people-to-people contact, and projecting the Canada-Mexico partnership globally and regionally.
Mr. Quevado, during your time in pre-trial detention did you come across some other individuals in a situation similar to your own?

Mr. Quevedo and Mr. Olivares, according to a media report, an investigation has been opened in the killing of 42 people last week in a confrontation with the federal police.
Is this common for security forces to do this?

Thank you to our witnesses for your time and your presentations.
The ongoing harassment, arbitrary detention, and imprisonment of human rights defenders illustrate Vietnam's failure to live up to its repeated pledges to protect human rights. Last year, for instance, Vietnam detained or imprisoned at least 11 bloggers and human rights defenders, and it currently holds about 200 political prisoners, the largest number in Southeast Asia.
Is more international pressure on Hanoi needed to ensure that arbitrary arrests and imprisonment stop and that all political prisoners, including human rights defenders, are released? In your opinion is the Vietnamese government likely to cave to international pressure?

Thank you, Mr. Chair, and thank you, Mr. Pham, for your testimony today to our subcommittee.
Vietnam's government continues to violate a broad area of human rights and is among the worst offenders in the world. Vietnam is ranked 174th out of 180 countries in the Reporters Without Borders 2014 “World Press Freedom Index”. In 2014 authorities prosecuted at least 29 dissidents and activists and sentenced them to a total of 129 years in prison. They also arrested at least 13 other rights activists pending investigations or trial.
Mr. Pham, could you please comment on the voluntary commitments Vietnam promised to the UN Human Rights Council? To what extent has the Vietnamese government fulfilled its voluntary commitments to the UN?

Minister, on March 18, 2015, our Prime Minister announced support to help boost Canadian exports, specifically, a new export market development program that will provide a total of $50 million over five years in direct financial assistance to entrepreneurs seeking to export to emerging markets for the first time, and an expansion of the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service, representing $42 million over the first five years, and $9.25 million in ongoing support after that. So can you tell us how these two programs will assist SMEs to make the leap into exporting?

Minister, over the last two months we have heard tremendous support from stakeholders for the Go Global workshops. Can you tell us what the next steps will be in raising awareness of how our government supports export agencies?
