Speaking at the event, Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Le Cong Thanh spoke highly of environment personnel training cooperation between central and local State management agencies, as well as between domestic and foreign scientists over the past years, contributing to socio-economic development of the country and the sector in particular.

He wished that international organisations would continue assisting the ministry and the institute to improve training efficiency, thus meeting demand amid the fourth industrial revolution.

Participants also shared experience in the field from countries.
