The National Assembly consists of 500 members elected by popular vote to five-year terms through single-member districts or multi-member constituencies determined by population size; it also has non-voting members appointed by provincial governments.

Vietnam has engaged in active diplomacy since the 1980s to improve its foreign relations. The country has been particularly successful in its efforts to normalize relations with the United States and other Western countries. Vietnam’s foreign policy is based on the principles of peaceful coexistence, respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity of other nations, non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries, and mutually beneficial cooperation.

In addition to this, Vietnam also promotes good relations with its ASEAN neighbors such as Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia and Laos. Vietnam also engages in international organizations such as the United Nations (UN) and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). It is an active member of both organizations and contributes actively to their activities.
