In the context of Vietnam's efforts to shift towards developing a clean, green economy, the application of advanced equipment and automation lines is always a priority, especially in the manufacturing and metallurgical industries.

Joint venture cooperation and product development between Vietnamese enterprises and foreign partners being endowed with advanced technology in processing and manufacturing industries that meet the criteria "Green trade, energy and green industry" is an urgent need.

Green brands are becoming a popular concept as consumers' needs and criteria for using environmental friendly products are increasingly high. Accordingly, green transformation, green production, green trade, green consumption, green growth and development have become an inexorable trend, not an option for countries around the world.

The 19th International Exhibition on Industrial Machinery, Equipments, Materials and Products in Vietnam - Vinamac Expo 2024, with the theme "Towards green production, trade, energy and green industry", held on May 16 - 18 in Hanoi is an opportunity for organizations and businesses to promote products, increase experience exchange, seize investment opportunities, expand markets, enter into joint ventures, and transfer technology to improve efficiency in production and business.

Mr. Pan Yue Long , Chief Supervisor cum Head of China Electricity Council (CEC),  shared that the promotion of green and low-carbon energy development has become a common awareness worldwide. He proposed three suggestions for building and promoting future cooperation between C Vietnam and China in the energy field.

The first is to actively promote transformational cooperation in the field of green energy and low carbon in the region. Second is to strengthen cooperation in the field of electricity science and technology innovation. Third is to work together to build a mutually beneficial electricity industry ecosystem.

"Green energy and low carbon will be a hot spot in power and energy industry cooperation between China and Vietnam in the future," he said. "China and Vietnam need to work towards common aspirations for energy development, maximize their advantages and take advantage of good opportunities at Vinamac Expo 2024 to further enhance China-Vietnam power and energy industry cooperation to achieve win-win goals, continue to promote power and energy cooperation between the two countries."

"Vietnamese enterprises have been persistent in their effort for global integration," he said.
