The deal, inked by Minister of Industry and Trade Tran Tuan Anh and a representative of Siemens AG, is part of the roadmap towards realising the joint statement issued by the Ministry of Industry and Trade and the German Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy last month.
Smart infrastructure development for Vietnam is made based on the country’s economic, energy, and industrial production situation with a view to making Vietnam an industrialised economy that pursues sustainable development in the near future.
It looks to ensure sufficient and sustainable energy, train high-quality human resources, and carry out the Green Growth Strategy and infrastructure development plan in the country.
Before the signing ceremony, Minister Anh had a working session with German Minister of Economic Affairs and Energy Peter Atmaier and leaders of Siemens AG, during which they reviewed cooperation between the two sides under the joint statement, and urged the engagement of the German corporation in smart infrastructure building in Vietnam. –VNA
