Joining the COP26 ZEV Declaration is one of our many efforts for greater achievements - to be one of the leading electric vehicle manufacturers in the world while contributing to help steer global markets toward a green future for all.”
British Ambassador to Vietnam Iain Frew said: “The UK Government welcomes VinFast’s participation in this global declaration. VinFast’s signature sends a strong signal to global markets and partners of its business capability, social responsibility and commitment to supporting the global climate agenda. With this movement, VinFast has joined a growing leadership group of 14 automotive manufacturers that share the same commitment. The UK would like to encourage other Vietnamese stakeholders to consider signing up to this declaration and participating in the Accelerating to Zero Coalition."
