October 28, 2006

Ten Vietnamese officials are on an environment protection course offered by the Korea Environment and Resources Corp. (ENVICO) in Inchon for 16 days. The course, which started on Oct. 17, includes lectures and discussion sessions, where local experts will introduce the nation’s policies in water resources, air pollution, management of waste and others.

The participants will also inspect pollution-control facilities, while touring the waste treatment plant in Mapo, Seoul, the nation’s largest steel plant of POSCO in Pohang, and Hyundai Motor in Ulsan, South Kyongsang Province.

“The course is expected to contribute to solving environment pollution problems Vietnam has been experiencing a similar stage of economic growth that Korea experienced in the past. In addition, it can provide an opportunity for Korean environment-related companies to advance into Vietnam,” said Kim Ae-sun, chief of the center for international policy research at ENVICO.
