NDO/VNA – Vietnam always attaches importance to its energy security, considering it as a top priority in the country’s energy development policy and strategy, said Nguyen Van Binh, head of the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee’s Commission for Economic Affairs.
At a reception for former US Secretary of State John Kerry in Hanoi on January 10, he said that Vietnam wants to promote renewable energy development for power generation, contributing to energy security, climate change mitigation, environmental protection and sustainable development.
Stressing the importance of energy, the theme of the Vietnam Economic Forum 2017 held by the Commission for Economic Affairs, John Kerry recommended stronger collaboration between the two countries in the field, including the development of renewable and clean energies.
He said he hopes that Vietnam will have policies to lure investors in the sector. He also affirmed to further the efforts to promote bilateral ties in any capacity.
Head of the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee’s Commission for Economic Affairs Nguyen Van Binh said that as Vietnam is intensively and extensively integrating into regional and global economies, the country always rolls out red carpet for foreign investors, particularly those from the US.
He lauded the contributions made by John Kerry to the Vietnam-US relations in trade, investment and other fields that bring practical benefits to the people of both countries.
