A Japanese funded water supply project was launched in Hue city, the central province of Thua Thien-Hue on November 18.

The Yokohama Waterworks Bureau will provide 600,000 USD to the three-year project, which will be carried out by the Thua Thien-Hue Construction and Water Supply One Member Limited Liability Company (HueWACO).

Under the project, the two sides will exchange relevant technologies in order to improve the management of water supply in Thua Thien-Hue.

Since 2002, the Yokohama Waterworks Bureau has dispatched experts and helped the locality train officials in this sector while implementing various water supply activities in the central province.

The bureau has funded many projects for the locality, including a 4.6 million USD project on human resources development in the water supply sector in the central region of Vietnam during the periods of 2007-2009 and 2010-2013.

Thanks to the assistance, HueWACO has been successful in managing water quality and water pipelines, personnel training and improving its services.-VNA
