Forum discusses green development strategy

Vietnam: Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Nguyen Linh Ngoc explained the Government's policies to develop a green economy at a two-day forum that ended on Saturday.

Last September, the Government approved a national strategy on green growth in order to show that Viet Nam prioritises sustainable development. The strategy aims to change the country's economic development model in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and form an effective economic structure, following the current trend in much of the world.

The phrase "green economy" refers to a low-carbon economic model that uses natural resources efficiently and aims to achieve social equity, resulting in improved human well-being while significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities.

Most participants at the forum said that a green economy would bring about long-term benefits for Viet Nam. They suggested the country invest more in major green economic sectors such as organic agriculture, eco-tourism, recycling and bio-energy.

As Viet Nam is on the path of industrialisation and modernisation, they highlighted the significance of building sustainable residential and industrial zones, which could ease environmental pollution and conserve natural resources.

As part of the forum, a televised exchange among businesses was held in which managers, experts, scientists and businesspeople discussed measures to boost green economic development.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
