UK supports Vietnam in energy transition toward a low-carbon economy

In May 28, the Prine Minister, Pham Minh Chinh had a meeting with Mr. Alok Sharma, British Cabinet Minister and President of the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 26), in Hanoi. The Prime Minister suggested the UK Government help accelerate the implementation of bilateral economic cooperation agreements and encourage British companies to invest in Vietnam, especially in fields where the UK possesses strengths, such as clean energy.

For his part, Sharma stressed that Vietnam is one of the British Government’s important partners in preparing for the conference, and lauded the country’s commitments and active participation in multilateral climate change forums as well as its efforts in cutting greenhouse gas emissions. He also raised issues that need to be solved in order to promote the development of renewable energy in Vietnam, in which, the problem of the power grid is the biggest difficulty for Vietnam to gradual transit away from coal.
