US pledges assistance for Vietnam’s climate change adaptation
Receiving visiting Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh in Boston on May 14 (local time), Kerry expressed his impression of Vietnam’s COP26 commitments to reducing greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2025, as well its approach to energy transformation and climate change response.
He assured Chinh that the US government and he personally will work closely with relevant Vietnamese agencies to meet these commitments.
Kerry noted that at COP26 more and more businesses strongly supported the development of supply chains and value chains for the renewable energy industry and they were making efforts to restructure supply chains to produce products that meet new emission standards.
He affirmed that many large global and US financiers are keen to invest and engage in energy transition in Vietnam, and expected that Vietnam would seize this great opportunity.
