At the 5th United Nations Conference on the Least Developed Countries (LDC), Vietnamese Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Le Thi Thu Hang called on developed countries to transfer technology and provide financial support for the least developed countries during the green transition and carbon emission reduction process.

Deputy Minister Hang, who led a Vietnamese delegation to the 5th LDC held in Qatar from Sunday to Wednesday, hailed the meaning of the conference.

She suggested improving the least developed countries' internal forces and national competitiveness based on their strengths and characteristics.

It is also important to enhance their market access capability.

According to the Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Deputy Minister Hang also shared Vietnam’s experience in fast and sustainable socio-economic development.

She affirmed that Vietnam is willing to act as a bridge connecting developed and least developed countries, especially through the South-South cooperation, a term historically used by policymakers and academics to describe the exchange of resources, technology, and knowledge between developing countries, and tripartite cooperation agreements.

The 5th LDC, themed 'From Potential to Prosperity,' was attended by some 5,000 delegates, including high-ranking leaders of the United Nations and the least developed countries.

The conference approved a statement affirming the commitment to the deployment of the Doha program of action with six key focus areas.

They include investing in people in the least developed countries to leave no one behind and enhancing their international trade and regional integration.

Within the framework of the 5th LDC, Hang met with representatives of Cuba, India, Benin, Uganda, Eswatini, Kazakhstan, Venezuela, the World Bank, and UNESCO.

She also held talks with leaders of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, the Ministry of Labor, and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Qatar.
