“In particular, we strongly encourage renewable energy development, especially of biomass and wind power sources as it contributes to reducing climate change impacts and minimizing dependence on traditional energies,” Mr. Paust said.

In addition to the development of energy supply, German development cooperation focuses on specialized training in the field of renewable energy in the coming time.

Germany and Vietnam launched bilateral development cooperation in the field of renewable energy 10 years ago and such cooperation has been realized through agreements, Mr. Paust added.
