The World Bank on July 5 approved a 2.37 million USD effective energy use and clean production for Vietnam to be funded by the Global Environment Fund.

The project will help improve the capability of the government and Vietnamese partners in implementing the national energy programme in order to improve the efficiency of energy utilisation and the reduction of green house gas emission.

The three-phase project will also map out an action plan to promote the effective use of energy in key industries and develop energy service suppliers./.
