HANOI, May 6, 2014 -- Thank you, to our partners in the Ministry of Construction for the opportunity to be here at the launch of the Vietnam Clean Energy Program as our example of the close partnership between the United States and Vietnam. I commend the Ministry of Construction in taking on this ambitious and forward-leaning effort. Greater energy efficiency is an important goal, not just in Vietnam but worldwide. This goal involves not simply the installation of efficient energy fixes, such as new light bulbs or installing double-paned windows, but the transformation of industries and the potential creation of a new service sector that can contribute to Vietnam’s enviable record of growth.  This is a goal worth the investment of our time and leadership.

It is a pleasure and a privilege to join you today at this workshop on the role of the National Assembly in Vietnam's budget decision-making and oversight.

This morning we celebrate a historic milestone for our bilateral relationship. Today's ceremony marks the start of a project between Vietnam's Ministry of National Defense and the U.S. Agency for International Development, USAID, to clean up dioxin contaminated soil and sediment at the airport left from the Vietnam War. Over the next few years, workers will dig up the contaminated soil and sediment and place it in a stockpile, where it will be treated using thermal desorption technology. This process uses high temperatures to break down the dioxin in the contaminated soil and make it safe by Vietnamese and U.S. standards for the many men, women, and children who live and work in this area.
