Around 200 international and domestic delegates sought to foster linkages between the State, businesses and researchers in managing the environment at a conference held in Hanoi on September 20.

The event was co-organised by the Centre for Environmental Technology Cooperation between Vietnam and Sweden ( CENTEC), the Swedish Embassy in Vietnam, the Stockholm Environment Institute ( SEI ) and Vietnam’s Institute of Strategy and Policy on Natural Resources and Environment (ISPONRE).

Integrated measures, feasible technologies and legal issues and policies related to the environment were introduced to the delegates.

CENTEC Director Tomas Hertzman told the delegates that waste and environmental pollution issues in Sweden have been resolved efficiently due to the sound legal corridor and stimulating policies.

At the conference, experts debated factors essential to mutual cooperation between the State, firms and researchers as well as ways to take full advantage of the partnership between Vietnamese and Swedish enterprises.

On the occasion, CENTEC and Swedish businesses held an exhibition themed European Green Business Solutions for Vietnam at Hanoi-based Melia hotel, showcasing environmental technologies and equipment from Sweden.-VNA
