The fifth Viet Nam-Japan environmental policy dialogue

Mr. Nhan praised the Japanese Environmental Ministry for cooperating and providing positive assistance for Viet Nam in manpower development and climate change response. 

Japanese Vice Environmental Minister Takaaki Katsumata said that during the 45 years of diplomatic ties, Japan and Vietnam have cooperated with each other in many fields, including the environment.

The Viet Nam-Japan Environmental Policy Dialogue enters the fifth edition, while the Viet Nam-Japan Environmental Week is being held for the first time from January 9-11, he stated, adding that both sides will exchange views on climate change and waste management, and put forward solutions to address these issues and step up cooperative activities.

In 2019, the two countries will continue consolidating their relations and boosting collaboration in the fields of environment and climate change through cooperation programs and projects on policymaking, green growth, pollution control, and waste and wastewater management and treatment.

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment suggested that the Japanese side maintain cooperation and share its experience with Vietnam in making policies on climate change adaptation and greenhouse gas emission reduction./.
