(VOV) - The Japanese government has provided 10-15 billion yen for a water supply project in Vietnam through the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
The sum will be used to build and manage water supply systems and waste treatment plants in Hanoi and surrounding areas.
The Vietnam Water Supply, Sewerage and Environment Investment Construction Corporation (VIWASEEN) and Japan’s Metawater Company will take part in the project.
JICA will evaluate the project this month and consider other assistance projects, such as building schools in Vietnam and a poverty reduction initiative in Pakistan. The agency hopes to help Japanese businesses export their technologies to foreign countries and improve infrastructure in developing countries.
