Vietnam's transition to renewable energy
Vietnam’s energy system presents the opportunity for the creation of a renewable energy industry.

The success of this industry will act as a breakthrough for the Vietnamese government in implementing the goals of green growth and sustainable development that is also stated in resolution 55/NQ-TW.
