Vietnam: Water and Wastewater Treatment Email
Written by Katja Rauhala  

Vietnam is facing a combination of environmental problems including air, water, and solid waste pollution. Major factors contributing to these problems include high population growth, rapid urbanization, accelerating industrialization, and the weak enforcement of the Law on Environmental Protection and Development.

The 2006 -2010 Socio-Economic Development Plan, approved by the National Assembly in June 2006, identifies environmental protection as one of the pillars of social and economic development. Water quality and wastewater treatment are stated priorities of the Vietnamese government. Municipal and industrial wastewater is the main cause of water pollution in the cities. In recent years, the government has spent an amount equivalent to 0.5% of the country's GDP each year for environmental protection activities, with plans to increase this budget to 1% of GDP by 2010, according to the National Strategy of Environmental Protection.

This report provides a market overview and trends of water supply and wastewater treatment in Vietnam, recommendations for market entry and best sales prospects for U.S. suppliers.
