In reply, Harford briefed the host on the outcomes of his working sessions with representatives from some ministries and partners in Viet Nam, during which they defined specific support requirements in the JETP implementation as well as the modernisation of the energy sector.
He called energy transition a complicated, long-term process, and pledged that the GEAPP will be a long-term partner that stands ready to advise and help Viet Nam with suitable solutions.
The GEAPP will also mobilise more international partners in technology, finance and administration to enable Viet Nam to use more clean energy sources, promote production and create jobs in new sectors, thus taking the lead in the region in renewable energy, he said./. VNA
