Poland helps with green issues
HA NOI (VNS)— Issues relating to waste and sewage management, energy saving and renewable sources of energy in Viet Nam were high on the agenda at the Poland-Viet Nam Environmental Protection Forum that opened in Ha Noi yesterday.
At the forum, participants discussed how to use the 2005 environment law to minimise the negative impacts of socio-economic development on the environment.
Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and the Environment Bui Cach Tuyen said Viet Nam was striving to build a green economy by using environmentally friendly and energy saving technologies.
The forum also provided an excellent opportunity for Polish businesses to invest in this field in Viet Nam, said Tuyen.
Poland's visiting Deputy Minister of Environment Beata Jaczewska said that Poland was eager to share its experience in this field with Viet Nam and willing to share its cutting-edge technologies for environmental protection.
Some of these tackle problems such as waste management and treatment, dealing with toxic waste, industrial and daily sewage systems, recycling sources of energy and energy saving devices.
More Polish businesses have sought Vietnamese partners to share green technologies with. The first joint venture between them was established this year. — VNS
