A Belgian delegation led by Brussels’s Minister of Economy and Foreign Trade Benoit Cerexhe arrived in the northern province of Ha Nam on March 14.

Ha Nam is one of the localities of Vietnam that benefits from the Belgian government’s ODA.

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 will continue providing official development assistance (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 helps 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 for a project to build and improve sewage pumping stations in Phu Ly city.-VNA
