Stressing the urgency of environmental degradation, natural resource exhaustion, and climate change, Thang said the Party and State of Vietnam identified consistent and critically important targets, viewpoints, and measures for promoting green growth to achieve economic prosperity, environmental sustainability, and social equality while practically contributing to the international community’s efforts to protect the ecological environment and respond to climate change.

For his part, Li said the protection of the ecological environment and civilisation holds special importance in China’s efforts to realise the Second Centenary Goal. He also introduced China's general target on environmental protection set at the 20th National Congress of the CPC, which is pursuing green development and promoting harmony between humanity and nature, results obtained so far, experiences, and effective measures.

Both officials affirmed the importance of increasing theoretical discussions between the two Parties in the new context, saying those events are occasions for the two sides to share the CPV and CPC’s theoretical achievements and practical experiences in leading and organizing the implementation of guidelines and policies on the protection of the ecological environmental and civilisation, particularly during the process of national modernization and development in each country.

The same day, Thang and Nguyen Van Nen, Politburo member and Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee, had separate meetings with Li and the CPC delegation.
