In the coming time, the two sides will soon hold a video conference to clarify issues related the building of circular economy to protect the environment.


Vietnam proposed that the Japanese side continue to implement works related to the intensive research for economic tools in managing domestic solid waste to contribute to building the circular economy, thus assisting Vietnam in designing decrees and circulars to guide the implementation of the law.
