HCM City launches five environment protection programs for 2006-2010
 

HCM City has launched five large environment protection programs for the 2006-2010 period with the aim of helping the city harmonize economic growth with social progress.
 

These five programs will help remove all the seriously polluting industrial establishments from the city's interior, and treat 100% industrial and handicraft production establishments' effluent, 95% of ordinary solid waste, 75% of deleterious industrial waste, and 100% of medical waste in accordance with environmental standards.

 

The programs are believed to help clean the city as well as expand the average coverage of green area in the urban areas to 6-7 square meters per capita.
 

The city will set up a fund to provide assistance to waste recycling establishments, recognize environment-friendly products, and impose fines on polluting individuals and production establishments.
 

In addition, it has been conducting three programs to raise public awareness on environmental protection, to reinforce State management, and to intensify inter-regional and international cooperation on the issue.

 

The city will conduct a survey to collect data of industrial pollution and will classify production establishments by environment-friendly criteria.
 

A facility to deal with harmful industrial effluent is designed for construction and is expected to be put into operation in 1-2 years.
