Strengthening Vietnam - US relations in the field of environment
Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Vietnam received US Acting Trade Representative
On 23 April, 2013, in Hanoi, the Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Nguyen Minh Quang has warmly received the Acting Trade Representative of the US, Ambassador Demetrios James Marantis.
The Minister said Vietnam attended Trans-Pacific Partnership, which has some to environment-related contents. Recently, along with socio-economic development, coping with climate change and the environment are main interests of Vietnam Government. The Government is directing the amendment of the Law on Environmental Protection to keep pace with the development of the country. Vietnam hopes to increasingly cooperate with the United States, especially in the field of environment.
According to Mr. James Demetrios Marantis, Vietnam is a developing country, so many goals in the trade agreement would be an obstacle to the development of Vietnam. The U.S wishes Vietnam will strictly implement the contents in the upcoming round of negotiations.
