Hanoi (VNA) – About 10.4 billion VND, or 464,000 USD, will be invested in a Japan-funded project on capacity building and technology training to reduce clean water loss in Hanoi City from 2016-2018.

The project, carried out by the Hanoi Water Ltd. Co., is intended to improve loss management capacity and apply advanced technology to reduce loss of water through pipe leakage.

Technical training will be provided for the company’s staff for better water loss control.

Nearly 9 billion VND in financial assistance will be provided for the project by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) through its Partnership Programme.

The fund will be spent on training activities, provision of water leak detectors and advanced technology to control the problem.
