The Republic of Korea will provide Vietnam with 2 million USD between 2013 and 2014 to implement the final green growth strategy.

An agreement to this effect was signed in Hanoi on November 9 between Deputy Minister of Planning and Investment Nguyen The Phuong and Chief Representative of the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) Kim In.

Under the agreement, KOICA will help the ministry devise a roadmap to realise targets in their green growth policy.

Phuong said to achieve the development goals, improve growth quality and ensure a sustainable environment and ecology, it is essential for Vietnam to access green growth for sustainable development.

He said he believed that through the project, KOICA will help the ministry strengthen its staff’s capacity in green growth, as well as assist localities in developing green economy projects.-VNA
