He stressed the event was one of the practical activities aimed at pushing up the relations between the two countries.

The Embassy of Finland has been providing active support to the country’s firms in implementing projects in Vietnam, most recently the waste-to-energy plant in Bac Ninh’s Que Vo district, he added.

He hoped that the northern province will continue helping and offering conditions to soon complete the project.

Speaking at the reception, Ms. Nguyen Huong Giang said Bac Ninh discharges about 870 tonnes of wastes from the daily life activities, and this figure will increase 10 percent annually. As a result, Bac Ninh is facing with the problem environmental pollution.

She expressed her thank for Finland’s support to the province in implementing the waste-to-energy technology and pledged that Bac Ninh authorities will create the best possible conditions for the project to be accelerated, completed and operated./.
