The project in Ben En National Park not only contributes to protect low belt forest ecosystems, but also raises young people’s awareness of environmental protection through practical planting activities. This is the seventh year that the planting forest cooperation project of Canon Vietnam is deployed in Ben En National Park, with the total area of newly planted forest growing to 120 hectares (all Erythrophleum fordii).Mr. Shunji Sawa, General Director of Canon Vietnam, said: "Through this program, I hope that the students, Ho Chi Minh unionists, and Vietnam youth in general will raise their awareness of environmental protection and afforestation to create “Green-lungs” for our Earth. The Earth is what we depend on for life, so let’s protect the Earth as we do our lives. This will be the most valuable gift we can transfer to the next generation. Let's try together for the greater development of Vietnam”.
