Nikkei wrote that the governments of the United States and Japan will support Vietnam’s efforts to shift to liquefied natural gas from less clean types of fossil fuels by providing financial and human resource development assistance. The paper speculated that the move is intended to counter China’s growing influence in the energy sector by helping nations in Asia to reduce carbon emissions. According to the paper, the three nations issued a joint statement on their collaboration at a trilateral forum on LNG held Thursday, and the United States and Japan pledged to provide financial assistance to Vietnam for the construction of LNG-fired power plants and receiving terminals. The countries will also work on the construction of facilities and training of necessary personnel.
