The SETP continues to support the Vietnam Energy Partnership Group (VEPG) to effectively utilize foreign aids to promote sustainable energy development in Vietnam, in line with national laws and international conventions in which Vietnam is a member.

The two parties participating in the dialogue have exchanged information on Vietnam's renewable and sustainable energy plans, including the implementation progress of Power Development Plan 8 (PDP8), The process of the MOIT to realize the "Just Energy Transition Partnership (JETP)", etc. In addition, the two sides also discussed the financial mechanism for using the budget of SETP.

Established in 2019, VNEEP3 is divided into two phases, 2019-2025 and 2026-2030, aims to mobilize domestic and foreign resources, promote energy utilization, and promote energy conservation and efficiency.

On the other hand, REDS promotes the development of renewable energy by mobilizing all resources of society to ensure affordable access to modern, sustainable and reliable energy, increase domestic energy supply and reduce dependence on fossil fuels.
