VGP – Deputy PM Hoàng Trung Hải on April 1 stressed the importance of early promulgation of a strategy and Master Planning Scheme for the development of renewal energies by 2030 and a vision towards 2050.
The strategy and scheme will create legal foundation for investors to forge investment in renewal energy projects, particularly wind power ones, said the Deputy PM.
