HCM City looks for Japan’s support in environment protection

Ho Chi Minh City hopes to receive support from Japan, including the country’s Ministry of the Environment, in climate change adaptation projects, said Vice Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Le Thanh Liem. 

In a reception for visiting Japanese Deputy Minister of the Environment Shigemoto Kajihara on December 15, Liem said the city expects to be supported in technology transfer, capital assistance and human resources training in the environment field. 

Regarding investment projects funded by the Japanese Government, he suggested expanding cooperation between the two sides in projects to treat waste water and save energy, saying that the city is calling for investment in these domains. 

The municipal authorities are very interested  in measures to protect the environment and improve the quality of life of locals, Liem stressed, hoping that the Japanese side will continue  assisting and cooperating with the city to well perform the work. 

For his part, Shigemoto Kajihara said he hopes HCM City and Japan will work more closely on environmental protection. 

Japan is willing to share its experience as well as technology  in treating wastes and tackling environmental pollution, he affirmed. 

He also underlined  the need to expand more cooperation models  between HCM City and Japanese partners, which are similar to those between the city and Osaka prefecture, in the coming time.
