In Berlin on March 31, 2023, a seminar was conducted by the Vietnamese Embassy in Germany and the Vietnamese Innovation Network in Europe (VINEU) to discuss ways to strengthen cooperation under the Just Energy Transition Partnership Agreement (JETP) towards the goal of achieving net-zero emissions in Vietnam by 2050.

The Vietnamese Ambassador to Germany, Vu Quang Minh, highlighted Vietnam's aim to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 as a significant challenge and expressed the country's desire to receive cooperation and support from international partners. The seminar aimed to provide an opportunity for all parties to resolve issues related to the implementation of the Just Energy Transition Partnership Agreement, and to work towards building a green Vietnam and a green world.

State Secretary in the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, Jochen Flasbarth, acknowledged Vietnam's potential as a leader in the energy transition in Southeast Asia, with the advantage of wind and solar energy. The Vietnamese government has set ambitious goals for reducing climate change and dependence on thermal power plants. Flasbarth expressed Germany's willingness to support Vietnam in its energy transition, and suggested that existing solutions from the European Union and Germany could be shared with Vietnam through investment and trade exchanges.

This seminar is an important step towards addressing the challenges posed by climate change and working towards a sustainable future. It provides an opportunity for different stakeholders to come together, exchange ideas and best practices, and identify ways to support Vietnam's goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. With the collective efforts of all parties involved, Vietnam can become a leader in the global fight against climate change and pave the way for a greener future.
