Chung said the treatment of waste and sewage, and reduction in environmental pollution are major challenges that the city is focusing its efforts on.

Therefore, the city hopes to receive more active assistance from the Japanese Ministry of Environment in the field, he said, adding that Hanoi is willing to partner with the Japanese side to address relevant problems.

For his part, Takaaki Katsumata said his ministry will coordinate with Vietnam’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment to organise the Vietnam-Japan Environmental Week.

A number of workshops and seminars will be held during the week to introduce Japan’s fuel technology in Vietnam as well as promote investment and connect businesses of countries that are interested in environmental issues, he added.

The vice minister added that within the framework of the environmental week, the two sides will set up a committee responsible for waste treatment and management.

There will also be programmes introducing bilateral cooperation activities, he said.

Chairman Chung said Hanoi put into operation Vietnam’s first waste-to-energy facility in Nam Son Waste Treatment Complex, Soc Son district, in May 2017.

The factory applies Japan’s most advanced technology with a waste treatment capacity of 75 tonnes per day. –VNA
