The Vietnam Environmental Administration (VEA) and FrieslandCampina Vietnam (FCV) will cooperate in a joint programme titled “Vi moi truong Vietnam xanh” (For a green environment in Vietnam). 

VEA Head Nguyen Van Tai and FCV Managing Director Arnoud Van Den Berg signed an agreement to this effect at the fourth National Environment Conference in Hanoi on September 29, stipulating that the two sides will work together on promotional events for environmental protection.

The VEA and FCV will jointly produce several television shows to educate students on the environment as well as organise Green Innovation Awards, community-based “Clean Up the World” campaign and a celebration of World Environment Day.

These events aim to raise public awareness of environmental issues, urge more drastic action towards environmental protection and reduce harmful activities.

The National Environment Conference is held every five years. This year’s event took place in Hanoi from September 29-30, welcoming approximately 2,000 deputies to discuss science and technology for environmental protection.
