Vietnam pursues greener future

Vietnam, the new emerging tiger in ASEAN, is now looking towards "green development" and is seeking the help of leaders in the region to use the country as a base for research and development.

The country is "taking steps to restructure the economy towards reducing a number of high energy- and resource-consuming enterprises and to replace them with energy-efficient ones making use of environmentally friendly and cost-reasonable technologies," said Vietnam’s Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Thien Nhan.
