Executive summary:

Deepening ties between Australia and Vietnam are underpinned by increasingly

aligned views on a range of issues, including the green economy. Recent statements

from both leaders have articulated shared concerns about the impact of climate

change, including the pressing issues of rising sea levels and intensifying weather

patterns across Asia. These concerns have underscored the need for collaborative

efforts, and the green economy has emerged as a promising area for cooperation.

Australia’s aspirations in this area complement the ambitions of Vietnam. Australia’s

potential to be a renewable energy superpower could enable it to play a pivotal role

in the region’s green economy transition. Similarly, Vietnam places increasing focus

on diversifying its power generation, focusing on investment in renewable energy

sources such as wind and solar. Deepened bilateral cooperation would contribute

to regional efforts to mitigate the destructive effects of climate change. Building

meaningful cooperation in the green economy will require greater effort by both

government and business.

This is the first in a series of five briefing papers. It seeks to situate Vietnam’s green

economy in the broader political, economic and geopolitical context. Subsequent

papers will delve into more detail about opportunities and challenges across key

aspects of the green economy.
