Highlighting the sound growth of Vietnam – US relations in many spheres, the Envoy noted that the response to climate change plays an important role in ensuring environmental and energy security.
Taking into account Kerry’s suggestions, Minister Lam proposed the US side strengthen experience exchanges, technology transfer, and investment in clean energy projects in Vietnam.
He also recommended a series of fields for further cooperation, such as ensuring environmental security, and preventing and combating environmental crime.
Vietnam is well aware of climate change-induced challenges and has been consistent in conducting related responses and protecting the environment, he said.
After COP 26, Vietnam has demonstrated its strong commitment to combating climate change and taken steps to reach the net zero goal by 2050, the minister stated.
