Vietnam asserts role in ASEAN cooperation in environment

Vietnam's participation in ASEAN cooperation in the environment has clearly demonstrated the country's proactive, active and responsible integration into the world.

General Director of the Vietnam Environment Administration Nguyen Van Tai made the remark at a workshop on January 6 reviewing 20 years of Vietnam's engagement in the ASEAN environmental cooperation. Since Vietnam became a member of ASEAN in 1995 and participated in ASEAN's environmental cooperation in 1996, Vietnam has actively taken part in all spheres of environmental cooperation. Nguyen Thi Thanh Tram from the ASEAN Senior Officials on the Environment (ASOEN) office in Vietnam stressed the need to design and propose initiatives that can benefit the region and itself while enhancing communication activities to raise public awareness of regional cooperation in the environment.
