Associate Partner at CIP Robert Helms informed the Vietnamese Prime Minister of their offshore wind power and renewable energy projects, calling on the Government of Việt Nam to direct agencies and localities to cooperate to promote their investment projects in Vietnam.
He also proposed some projects with cooperation potential, saying that CIP is willing to support Vietnam to implement the resource-mobilizing plan in the Just Energy Transition Partnership (JETP) and the country’s plan on net-zero emission by 2050.
PM Chính spoke highly of the group’ effective business activities, including offshore wind power development projects in Vietnam. He said CIP has experience and capacity in the field of renewable energy, especially offshore wind power and new energy, which is very suitable for Vietnam’s policies and development potential.
Chinh said that since COP26, Vietnam has comprehensively implemented measures to implement its commitments, adding that in the coming time, Vietnam will focus on promoting the completion of strategic infrastructure, green energy transition, renewable energy, and digital transformation towards realizing the goal of carbon neutrality by 2050 and developing a green, sustainable economy.
He asked the group to coordinate closely with Vietnamese ministries, agencies, and localities to effectively implement their projects in Vietnam. He hopes that the group will continue to share experiences and support Vietnam in training human resources, improving mechanisms and policies, management capacity, research, and technology application to promote the development of renewable energy and energy transition.
Vietnam is committed to creating favorable conditions for foreign investors in general and CIP in particular for long-term business in Vietnam, PM Chính said.
