GIZ Invitation to the conference  “Just Energy Transition = Job Accelerator for Viet Nam? German-Vietnamese perspectives on employment and skills needs”

The German Embassy in Viet Nam and Germany’s implementation organization GIZ cordially invite you to the conference “Just Energy Transition = Job Accelerator for Viet Nam? German and Vietnamese perspectives on employment and skills needs”.

Date and time: 09:00 – 16:00, 20th September 2023.

Venue: Melia Hotel, 44 Lý Thường Kiệt, Hà Nội

Format: hybrid with MS Teams Agenda is enclosed HERE.

In 2021, Viet Nam pledged to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. Shifting from fossil fuels to sustainable energy sources like solar and wind power has been crucial for meeting this commitment and the country has made progress in developing a renewable energy market. With this conference, the German Embassy wants to focus on opportunities and challenges for the local labour market and economies in Viet Nam in the context of the just energy transition. Measures to create forward-looking favourable framework conditions for enhancing green skills and green jobs need to be identified and implemented. The German example demonstrates that a just energy transition brings significant economic growth and changes affecting training and decent employment. While reducing coal-fired power generation leads to job losses in the conventional energy sector, it also presents opportunities for modernizing the economy and creating new sustainable industries and green jobs.

Building on the long-standing cooperation between Germany and Viet Nam, the German Embassy organizes the conference to provide a platform for national and international policymakers, businesses, researchers and a wider public to come together and discuss this emerging topic.

Your presence and inputs at the conference will reinforce the ambition of the Vietnamese people and government in realizing a sustainable future. Please confirm your participation with Ms. Lê Thị Thu Hiền at Participation in person at Melia Hotel is limited. Confirmation of registration will be given in order of registration until the maximum number of participants is reached (“First come – first served”). If you wish to participate virtually via MS Teams instead, please let us know. The deadline for registration is 12.09.2023.

We look forward to welcoming you to the conference.
