A breakthrough success of the visit is that it has created great confidence among Singaporean enterprises, many of which have expressed their intention to invest in Vietnam, he noted.

The city state is highly impressed with Vietnam’s green energy and energy security strategies, as well as the goal of achieving net zero emissions by 2050, he went on, perceiving that the two countries will make important strides in sustainable development and green energy investment.
