The People’s Committee of central Quang Tri province and World Vision International in Vietnam signed a memorandum of understanding on May 25 to implement the project “Developing initiatives for environmental protection in Trieu Phong district” from 2015 to 2017.

The Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and the Korea Exchange Bank provided 400,000 USD for project implementation.

The project is to help the residents of eight communes in Trieu Phong district benefit from environmentally-friendly sustainable development models.

Since 2005, World Vision International in Vietnam has successfully implemented a number of projects in Quang Tri, including water and sanitation, maternal and child healthcare, and environmental protection projects.

Also at the signing ceremony, the provincial People’s Committee presented an honorary certificate to Daniel Selvanyagam, Chief Representative of the World Vision International for his contributions to implementing development projects in the province from 2005 to 2015.-VNA
