QUẢNG TRỊ — The central province of Quảng Trị has approved a plan to help businesses deal with pollution problems.
A fund of VNĐ161 billion (US$7 million) has been set aside to help companies over the next three years.
More than VNĐ144 billion ($6.2 million) is from the State budget whereas the remaining is from local budget.
The province now has more than 100 enterprises causing serious pollution, according to the provincial people’s committee, including rubbish dumping, local traditional markets, slaughterhouses, hospitals and traditional handicraft villages. The places are in different districts such as Gio Linh and Cam Lộ.
Most of the enterprises lack waste water and solid waste treatment system.
Under the project, the province will set up environmental supervision plans, improve inspection to prevent wrongdoings, and encourage high-tech application to environmental protection. — VNS
