The FIG Working Week 2019 was co-organized by the Vietnam Association of Geodesy, Cartography and Remote Sensing (VGCR), and the FIG.

The conference focused on tackling climate changes by working towards a smarter life both through the development of smart cities and also in rural areas.

Addressing the event, Deputy Minister of National Resources and Environment Nguyen Thi Phuong Hoa said that Vietnam was honored to hold the advanced technology and exchange experience with international partners in surveying and cartography, thus helping meet socio-economic development requirements and ensure defence security.

She expressed her hope that through this event, Vietnamese surveyors can learn from experience of international colleagues so as to contribute more to the development of the country’s surveying and cartography sector.

Along with three plenary sessions and 60 technical sessions, the event includes an exhibition on surveying and cartography, and technical tours to remote sensing, surveying and natural resources facilities in Vietnam.

The event in Hanoi was also an opportunity for the entire surveying and geospatial community to meet, discuss, learn and get inspired on overall emerging challenges currently faced by our world./.
