In his address to a session on shared efforts for a sustainable planet of the expanded Summit of the Group of Seven (G7) in Hiroshima, Japan, the Vietnamese Prime Minister raised his point of view on ensuring fairness and rationality, taking into account the different conditions and qualifications between countries; ensuring a strategic balance between clean energy transition and global energy security; and developing fair, diversified, highly practical energy transition roadmaps in line with market rules.
Prime Minister Chinh said human resources, science, technology and innovation are the central driving force for the sustainable development of all countries and the solution to the problem of both rapid and sustainable growth. He called on G7 countries and international organizations to increase support for developing countries in technology transfer, capacity building in institutions, infrastructure, human resources, governance methods, and ecosystem building for clean energy development.
The Prime Minister affirmed his support for Japan's "Asian Zero Emissions Community" (AZEC) initiative, suggesting that G7 countries and partners continue to work closely with Vietnam in implementing the agreement on Just Energy Transition Partnership (JETP) in a substantive and efficient manner as well as help Vietnam unlock its advantages to become a regional renewable energy center and deeply participate in supporting industrial production chains in clean energy and circular economy.
