PM approves national strategy for sustainable development

HA NOI – Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has approved Viet Nam's sustainable development strategy for the period 2011-20.

The strategy focuses on maintaining economic stability, especially with regard to food security, energy security and financial security. It also sets out the roadmap for Viet Nam's green growth in order to develop a low-carbon economy.

Progress in sustainable development during this period would be measured using the following criteria: Human Development Index, Environment Sustainability Index, efficiency of investment (IOCR) and poverty rate, among others.

The strategy supports small and medium-sized cities, in an attempt to reduce the development gap between regions, urban and rural areas, and different population groups.

Viet Nam's education system would be transformed to reach international standards and diversity and training would be emphasised. - VNS
