A representative from Japan’s Hiroshima province on September 5 presented to the People’s Committee of northern Ha Nam province a proposal on enhancing bilateral cooperation in water supply and wastewater treatment.

Hiroshima is interested in investment projects in Ha Nam and wants to share its experience to better run them, said Yoshio Sato, an official from the Hiroshima Department of Commerce, Industry and Labour.

He urged the two sides to work together on cooperation orientations and measures as well as specific projects, so that Hiroshima can choose suitable firms to collaborate with.

In the short-term, the Japanese prefecture will focus on water plant building and upgrading projects in Duy Tien district and Phu Ly city, and a wastewater treatment plant at the Dong Van 3 Industrial Zone.

The same day, representatives from Swing Corporation, a renowned Japanese company specialising in water supply and treatment, visited the areas allocated for the aforesaid projects.-VNA
