Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh visited a wind power project and met with renewable energy investors in the Mekong Delta’s Bac Lieu province on December 4, during which he affirmed that Vietnam has adopted mechanisms facilitating wind power development.

Pointing to the high price of wind power in Vietnam, the Prime Minster urged a review of investment in renewable energy, especially wind power, to ensure the harmony of interests between investors, the State, and the people.

He highlighted the transfer of technology and human resources training to ease reliance on imports, thus reducing the electricity price, and suggested investors and localities put the circular economic model, which combines wind power development with hydrogen production, agriculture, and aquaculture, into place.

At a working session with provincial leaders, Prime Minister Chinh said that with its potential, advantages, and opportunities, Bac Lieu province will promote green, rapid, sustainable socio-economic development, especially high-tech agriculture, renewable energy, trade, services, and tourism.
