The ASEM Green Growth Forum, with the theme “Jointly acting towards green economies,” closed in Hanoi on Oct. 4 after two days of working.
Addressing the closing ceremony, Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Tran Hong Ha put forward an action programme prioritising the building of bilateral and multilateral cooperation mechanisms relating to green growth such as a green climate fund and a clean development mechanism.
Ha said ASEM governments’ role should be further enhanced in building green growth mechanisms and policies while non-governmental organisations and business communities should be encouraged to involve in green growth.
Barriers in the transfer of green technologies among ASEM members and in the world need to be removed, the deputy minister said.
In addition, developed countries in ASEM should assist other members in training human resources in green economies and green growth towards the common goal of green growth and sustainable development, he added.
The two-day forum focused on green growth models applied in ASEM members, sharing experiences and lessons of green growth and analysing advantages and difficulties of countries when pursuing the goal of developing green economies and green growth.
