renewable energy projects, especially wind power ones.
Cooperation between Vietnam and the Netherlands
is flourishing with the recent establishment of a comprehensive partnership
which is hoped to further intensify bilateral relations.

support for investors who want to make investment, he said, adding that a plan
on this field will be built soon.-VNA
