“The NA would continue supervising the Government in implementing national plans and potential adjustment toward green growth.”

NA Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue gave the remarks during a meeting with the UK Cabinet Minister and President-Designate of COP26 Alok Sharma on June 30.

At the meeting, the UK minister said the climate change issue has now become an urgent matter, and expressed his impression of Vietnam’s determination in transitioning to renewables.

Sharma also suggested the two countries could strengthen cooperation in terms of finance, regulation reform, and experience in the energy transition.

He announced UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen co-signed a letter to Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh on the suggestion of setting up the Just Energy Transition Partnership (JETP) between G7 and Vietnam.

For his part, Vietnam NA Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue said the country has been one of the first pursuing millennium development goals (MDGs) and later sustainable development goals (SDGs), which have been legalized into law.

 Overview of the meeting. 

Hue stressed Vietnam’s commitments at the COP26 showcasing its strong political will in the fight against climate change and transitioning to a green economy.

“Such commitments are the contribution of Vietnam to the joint efforts of the international community in protecting the Earth,” he said.

Meanwhile, Vietnam just like other developing countries is facing multiple hurdles in realizing commitments.

“Beside domestic resources, the support from international partners, including the UK, is essential,” Hue stressed.

To accelerate the efforts toward net-zero carbon emission by 2050, Hue called for the two sides to continue cooperating in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to climate change.

“Vietnam seeks UK’s support in enhancing technical, financial capacity in moving to renewable energy,” he added.
