Guterres expressed his hope that Vietnam will continue to play an active role at multilateral forums in promoting initiatives to respond to climate change. He affirmed that the U.N. will always accompany Vietnam in this process, especially in mobilising resources and implementing the Just Energy Transition Partnership (JETP).

For his part, Giang stated that Vietnam is exerting efforts to realize commitments at COP26, particularly the goal of net zero emissions by 2050.

At this conference, Vietnam will join other countries in introducing many initiatives to promote global climate action; and continue to promote the implementation of the JETP, including the development of the Resource Mobilization Plan (RMP).
