Da Nang seeks Belgian capital for environmental projects
DA NANG — Belgian enterprises are considering seaport, food processing, healthcare, and waste treatment projects in the central city of Da Nang, the Belgium Ambassador to Viet Nam Bruno Angelet said during a visit here yesterday.
Meanwhile, a 2.7MW solar power project, a joint venture between Belgium's Matrix and Da Nang-based Central Airport Corporation, was expected to go into operation this year, Angelet said.
Da Nang People's Committee vice chairman Vo Duy Khuong has called on Belgian businesses to invest in tourism development, hi-tech, and banking and finance.
The city has also pointed to four major projects that are short of capital, including a power plant that burns waste, water and air pollution monitoring stations, and six waste treatment stations at hospitals.
The city's major landfill – the Hoa Khanh dump – was also expected to be overloaded and in need of a toxic cleanup by 2017, said Khuong. — VNS
