Construction of a sewerage system using the German Government’s Official Development Assistance started in the Mekong Delta province of Tra Vinh on September 15.

The system forms part of the waste water treatment project that costs more than 17 million EUR, including 12 million EUR from the German Government’s preferential loan.
