The summit session was attended by leaders of countries such as South Korean President Moon Jae-in, Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel; and a general discussion session with the participation of 170 government officials, international organizations, businesses, civic organizations, and academia.

With the theme “Inclusive Green Recovery Towards Carbon Neutrality,” leaders of the countries will focus on exchanging three priority contents: Green recovery from Covid-19, the international community's effort to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, strengthen climate action and facilitate public-private partnership.

In addition, the delegates attended discussion sessions to exchange ideas regarding carbon neutrality goals, green new strategies, food and agriculture, clean water, clean energy, green technology, finance, smart city, circular economy, marine economy, biodiversity and business connectivity.

The P4G Summit in 2021 is considered to be of great significance in the context that response to climate change and green recovery has become a top priority for countries. The P4G Summit 2021 will create an important impetus, boosting the determination and commitment of the international community to prepare for the 26th UN Climate Change Conference (COP 26) in November 2021.

Vietnam's participation in the P4G Forum in general and the P4G Summit in particular continues to affirm Vietnam's responsible contribution in promoting sustainable development, green growth and climate change response. At the same time, it also promotes international cooperation on priority issues of Vietnam. The Prime Minister's orientations at the conference and Vietnam's active contributions will also contribute to promoting the Vietnam - Korea Strategic Cooperation Partnership.

The Prime Minister affirmed that as a country heavily affected by climate change, despite many difficulties in resources, Vietnam always identifies green growth as a key goal and task in its development strategy. Vietnam is always proactive and responsible in cooperation and implementation of relevant international commitments, supporting and appreciating the UK's efforts in organizing the COP26 Conference in a direct format. Vietnam is ready to work closely with the UK and other partners to ensure the success of the conference with stronger and specific commitments to support developing countries to implement the Paris Agreement on climate change, especially access to financial resources and technology transfer.

The Partnering for Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030 (P4G) high-level forum was formed in 2017 on the basis of the initiative of the Danish Government, formerly known as the Global Green Growth Forum (3GF). Currently, the Forum has 12 member countries, including: Denmark, Chile, Mexico, Vietnam, Korea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Colombia, the Netherlands, Bangladesh, Indonesia and South Africa with the participation of more than 90 countries, international organizations and many corporations and businesses around the world.
