HA NAM — A Belgian delegation led by Brussels's Minister of Economy and Foreign Trade Benoit Cerexhe arrived in the northern province of Ha Nam yesterday.
Ha Nam is one of the localities of Viet Nam that benefits from the Belgian government's Official Development Assistance.
A Belgian-funded drainage system and wastewater treatment project in Phu Ly City is expected to be completed in the second quarter of this year.
The provincial People's Committee Chairman Mai Tien Dung expressed the desire that the Belgian government would continue providing ODA capital for the province to support environmental pollution treatment on Nhue River and wastewater and rubbish treatment in industrial parks and trade villages.
Benoit Cerexhe said he was impressed by the locality's economic development, adding that the meeting helped the delegation to learn more about projects being implemented by Belgian businesses in Ha Nam Province.
In the framework of the meeting, the two sides signed a memorandum of understanding on provision of ODA capital worth 10 million EUR (US$13 million) for a project to build and improve sewage pumping stations in Phu Ly City. — VNS
