Minister Moon commented, “The Ministerial ROK-U.S. Energy Policy Dialogue (EPD) will serve as an innovative cooperation platform for achieving the two countries’ 2050 carbon neutrality targets. The EDP also represents a first step that signifies the establishment of a true carbon neutrality partnership between the ROK and the U.S.. Going forward, the two countries will make concerted efforts to continue their close policy collaboration, seamlessly implement joint R&D projects, promote the participation of outstanding private companies, host the Clean Energy Cooperation Forum and exchange human resources.”
