NDO – Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung has suggested that the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) continues supporting Vietnam in developing its legal framework, in studying to enhance its management, promoting communications work to raise awareness of green growth, and sharing information and knowledge on green growth.

He made the suggestion at a meeting in Hanoi, on January 23, with the Director-General of the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) Frank Rijsberman.

The hosts also urged the GGGI to help train and develop human resources, and include green growth in the socio-economic development plan; analyse the feasibility of evaluation tools for Vietnam’s green growth and pilot them in several provinces, cities, and key sectors.

Deputy PM Dung highly appreciated the GGGI’s assistance for Vietnam in developing and implementing its Green Growth Strategy.

Meanwhile, he affirmed that Vietnam is accelerating its process of economic restructuring, and reforming its growth model in an intensive, cost-effective, energy-efficient, and environmentally friendly manner.

For his part, the GGGI Director General extended his thanks to the Government, ministries, sectors and localities of Vietnam for their support and close cooperation with the GGGI representative office in Vietnam in implementing green growth strategies in the finance, water and urban sectors.
