Hanoi (VNA) – The Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) is willing to team up with Asian political parties in tackling climate change issues in the region and in the world, stated Nguyen Thi Hoang Van, deputy head of the Party Central Committee's Commission for External Relations.

Van, who headed a Vietnamese party delegation to the International Conference of Asian Political Parties (ICAPP)’s special climate change seminar on December 8, shared the nation’s experience, policy and international collaboration efforts regarding the matter.

She also took note of Vietnam’s recent commitment at the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) on obtaining net zero by 2050.

The CPV was among 31 parties of 23 nations attending the virtual event.

Highlighting the role of Asian political parties in the realisation of the net zero target, the seminar adopted a joint statement, which affirmed the importance of maintaining and promoting cooperation among political parties, governments, international organisations and the private sector to achieve an inclusive and people-centred roadmap toward the goal./.
