Hanoi (VNA)
– The auto industry is striving to balance between its production and business, and environmental protection, heard a seminar in Hanoi on October 6.

Truong Thanh Hoai, head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT)’s Heavy Industry Department, said auto makers have paid heed to vehicles that can meet both consumers’ demands and environmental protection requirements.

The Vietnamese Government and the MoIT in particular always back the production of environmentally friendly car models, as reflected in the auto strategy and planning as well as relevant policies, he said.

According to the Association of Vietnam Automobile Manufacturers’ Association, environmental pollution is getting worse in big urban areas mainly due to emissions of CO, Pb and NOx discharged by means of transport.

To deal with the situation, auto makers have renovated technologies to churn out fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly vehicles, the association said.

At the seminar, auto makers like Ford Vietnam, Fuso and Toyota introduced cutting-edge auto manufacturing technologies.

The seminar forms part of the ongoing Vietnam Motor Show (VMS) 2016 which opened in Hanoi on October 5, displaying more than 100 car models by 13 domestic automobile makers, including Chevrolet, Ford, Honda and Toyota.-VNA
