Recently, Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh and Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen co-chaired the online ceremony to announce the establishment of the Green Strategic Partnership (GSP) between Vietnam and Denmark. GSP opens a new chapter in the more than 50-year cooperative relationship between the two countries.
The Vietnam-Denmark Green Strategic Partnership was established within the framework of the 52nd anniversary of establishing bilateral relations between Vietnam and Denmark.
It aims to recognize the strong and lasting cooperation between the two countries over the past 50 years.
The Green Strategic Partnership will contribute to realizing the efforts of the two Governments in promoting global climate, environment and nature ambitions, as well as a green transition that aims to create green jobs and avoid increasing inequality.
Green Strategic Partnership is built on mutually beneficial agreements, aiming to strengthen political cooperation, expand economic relations towards green growth, create jobs, and strengthen cooperation in solving global challenges.
It offers solutions for green transition and climate change, with a focus on realizing the commitments of the Paris Agreement and the United Nations Sustainable Development goals.
From 1993 to 2015, Denmark was one of the countries with the largest bilateral Official Development Assistance (ODA) program for Vietnam.
Denmark accompanies Vietnam in its efforts to eradicate hunger and reduce poverty as well as contribute to Vietnam's outstanding achievements in the process of transforming from a poor country to a low-middle income country with impressive socio-economic growth rates today.
In 2013, Denmark and Vietnam signed a Comprehensive Partnership Agreement, elevating the two countries' bilateral relations, from traditional development cooperation to official partnerships covering areas such as political dialogue, trade and investment, green growth, energy, food safety, and culture.
Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh emphasized that the Green Strategic Partnership will contribute to making the two countries' cooperation become a model in North-South cooperation between developed and developing countries, in implementing commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions according to the net zero emissions target by 2050.
This is the basis to create a breakthrough in economic cooperation, and increase investment in the direction of green growth, circular economy, energy transition, demonstrating the responsibility of the two countries to join forces with the international community to solve global environmental and climate challenges.
Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen affirmed that the Green Strategic Partnership will pave the way for green cooperation and bring prosperity to the people of the two countries, as well as the common global sustainable development goal.

Danish Ambassador to Vietnam Nicolai Prytz affirmed that Denmark is currently one of the leading countries in the green transition process.
To accomplish this, the two countries need to bring the concept of green transformation into all areas of life, economy and society.
Therefore, the establishment of a Green Strategic Partnership between the two countries will create conditions for the transition process to take place synchronously from the Government level, to ministries, branches and businesses in Vietnam.
