She called on the Royal Family and Government of Denmark to further support Vietnam in realizing the commitments of the Just Energy Transition Partnership, the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

She suggested the Crown Prince support Danish organizations, such as the green national fund, to assist Vietnam's green transition, and encourage Danish businesses to operate in the Southeast Asian nation in the fields of renewable energy and green growth.

Vice President Xuan used the occasion to thank the Royal Family and Government of Denmark for creating favorable conditions for more than 16,000 Vietnamese to integrate into host society, thus contributing to the bilateral relations.

Frederik noted that he backs Danish enterprises to launch projects in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta and encourages them to expand operations to other potential areas.

Host and guest shared the view that the two countries need to maintain regular cultural, educational and people-to-people exchanges, especially between youths.

The same day, Vice President Xuan met with representatives from major Danish businesses spanning such areas as processing and manufacturing and renewable energy.

The Danish firms lauded efforts by the Vietnamese Government, ministries and agencies in improving the domestic investment environment, and shared the view that the Vietnam - Denmark Green Strategic Partnership will open up many opportunities for foreign enterprises to invest in sustainable development and green transition in Vietnam.

Vice President Xuan said the Vietnamese government prioritizes attracting quality foreign direct investment, targeting projects using high-tech, with high added values and sustainable development.
