Biz doubts VN’s engagement in climate policies
The business sector in Việt Nam has serious doubts about the impact of the historic COP21 global climate deal on the country’s environmental policies, according to a survey by the Economist Corporate Network (ECN).
Only 26.7 per cent of enterprises taking part in the survey believed there would be positive changes in Việt Nam’s policies following the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris last year.
The figure was far below the 53 per cent and 42 per cent who believed sustainable shifts in climate policies would take place in the world and in Southeast Asian region.
On the other hand, about 26.7 per cent of enterprises in Việt Nam expressed doubts about possible changes: three to four times higher than those who responded negatively about ASEAN and global policies, respectively.
