QUANG NINH (VNS) — Around 60 volunteers from Japan and several other countries, together with dozens of local residents, have planted three hectares of mangrove forest in north-eastern Quang Ninh Province's Tien Yen District.

The activity was held on Saturday to mark the 40th Anniversary of Diplomatic Relations between Viet Nam and Japan. It aims to protect the environment and raise public awareness of the importance of mangrove ecosystems.

The programme was organised with co-operation from Japan's Action for Mangrove Reforestation (ACTMANG), Ha Noi-based Viet Nam National University, and Quang Ninh Province's Red Cross. — VNS
