Leaders of the British Government and Parliament said Vietnam is the UK’s important partner in the region and that the strategic partnership between the two countries continues a very positive momentum, especially since the UK-Vietnam free trade agreement (UVKFTA) was signed and put into effect. The British business community expressed their belief that the visit will make an important contribution to conducting market surveys to promote investment cooperation in Vietnam in renewable energy, especially offshore wind power.
Economic and financial agencies of the British government as well as British financial, credit and banking institutions expressed their strong support for and willingness to contribute financial resources to realize Vietnam’s economic policies. In particular, British partners said they are ready to support and cooperate in specific projects in Vietnam to deliver on the commitments of the two countries' senior leaders in climate change, renewable energy, marine economy, green energy transition, digital transformation, production and manufacturing, and domestic supply chain.
