Petrovietnam attends Vietnam - US TIFA meeting

From 27th September to 2nd October 2019, the delegation of Vietnam National Oil and Gas Group (Petrovietnam) led by Mr. Dinh Van Son - member of the Board of Directors accompanied Minister of Industry and Trade Tran Tuan Anh to the United States to attend the Vietnam - US Trade and Investment Framework Agreement (TIFA) meeting and work with leading business groups of the United States in the field of energy infrastructure, renewable energy, and investment in gas power plant…

The Vietnam-US Trade and Investment Council is a bilateral cooperation mechanism between the two Governments, plays an active role in promoting and bringing effectiveness in the trade cooperation relations between the two countries. With fast and stable economic growth, improved investment and business environment, and other comparative advantages, Vietnam is becoming one of the potential US partners in the field of trade. Demand for electricity and energy use for both production and consumption is increasing while production capacity and investment in developing the energy sector is limited, thus investment opportunities in this area, especially for US investors are very open. In addition, as a member of the Paris Convention on greenhouse gas emissions, Vietnam is committed to developing sustainable energy and environmental protection through application of clean, renewable energy technologies and energy using efficiency. At the working sessions, the Vietnamese delegation shared about the strategic development orientation of Vietnam's energy industry in the coming time, especially in the context that Vietnamese economy is developing strongly in the right direction of the Vietnamese Party and State, effectively utilizing market opportunities from bilateral and multilateral cooperation mechanisms on the basis of mutual benefits.
