The main conference, which is held online and at the World Trade Center Binh Duong New City in Binh Duong Province on March 23, provides participants with strategies for green growth, innovative green technologies and opportunities to innovate beyond borders in ASEAN-wide green technology-based cooperation.
Green technologies are key to sustainable new products, services and manufacturing processes, and are essential for realizing green growth. They combine the opportunity to fuel economic growth and socio-economic development.
They also have strong potential to contribute to sustainable development, environmental improvements, a reduction of greenhouse gases, a reduction or mitigation of the effects of climate change and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
For the manufacturing sector of Vietnam, green technologies are of particular importance. They are the basis for the best use of natural resources and energy and the protection of the health and well-being of workers and consumers.
Also, they contribute to the reduction of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions and create new sustainable employment and economic growth with benefits for the industry, small and medium enterprises, the community and the economy.Saigon Times
